Into The Wardrobe

What We Can't Put Down...

Landing a job as a full-time fashion writer was a glamorous dream I never expected to fulfill.

Whether or not you knew who Amy Odell was before, it's important you know her now. She is the editor of and we can't get enough of her first book Tales from the Back Row. A collection of personal essays about what it’s like to be a young woman working in the fashion industry, Odell uses the allure of the fashion shows and exclusive after parties to make a statement how the fashion industry reflects our desperate desire to belong, to make a mark. While Odell does make serious points, is comedic as well, recounting pushing her way through crowds and meeting industry giants like Anna Wintour.

This combination of statements with comedic relief gives the reader a more wholistic look behind the scenes of fashion.
