Without fashion buyers, there would be no... fashion!
What does a fashion buyer do?
A Fashion Buyer in the Product Preparation Department coordinates the production process: they take care of purchasing the necessary materials and components to create collections, negotiate prices and deadlines with suppliers and maintain business relationships with them. They also look for new markets/suppliers, monitor current sales and work closely with designers on newly created collections and current trends.
