Retail Fashion Buyer – Interview

Business management

Business management

“You have to really enjoy business management first and product second and understand that in your career, if you really are truly a good merchant, you should be able to buy widgets, gadgets, and designer clothing exactly the same. You should be as good a buyer buying staple guns for the Home Depot as you are buying Couture.”

Retail Fashion Buyer Interview

This quote gives an inside scoop of the profession of a retail fashion buyer.  Gaining information by the buyer seems more useful to me since it’s knowledge from the actual place I’d like to be in one day.

It’s very important to know that knowledge in business management is higher in priority than the knowledge in the products.  It makes me feel more comfortable knowing my Communications degree will definitely be beneficial when negotiating, advertising, targeting audiences, and building relationships.
