It is a huge pleasure to give this book away today, because — full disclosure! — Amina is a great friend of mine and Heather’s. We worked with her at The Cut before it was even The Cut, so we go way back — and she definitely knows what she’s talking about when it comes to writing about the fashion industry. (Although, as far as I know, there was never a trail of bodies left in her wake.) I remember her telling me about this book during one Fashion Week several years ago, and I’m so excited and proud that it’s finally out in the world! To quote our own blurb, “#FashionVictim is sharp, stylish, and gleefully sinister; you’ll never read Vogue the same way again.”
Let’s read the back:
A darkly thrilling take on the fashion world, #FashionVictim is Heathers meets The Devil Wears Prada.
Fashion editor Anya St. Clair is on the verge of greatness. Her wardrobe is to die for. Her social media is killer. And her career path is littered with the bodies of anyone who got in her way. She’s worked hard to get where she is, but she doesn’t have everything.
Not like Sarah Taft. Anya’s obsession sits one desk away. Beautiful, stylish, and rich, she was born to be a fashion world icon. From her beach-wave blonde hair to her on-trend nail art, she’s a walking editorial spread. And Anya wants to be her friend. Her best friend. Her only friend.
But when Sarah becomes her top competition for a promotion, Anya’s plan to win her friendship goes into overdrive. In order to beat Sarah…she’ll have to become her. Friendly competition may turn fatal, but as they say in fashion: One day you’re in, and the next day you’re dead.
