How Long Have You Worked At Missy Empire?
Just over a year.
How Did You Land Your Job At Missy Empire?
I applied after being furloughed from my old job for months and was keen for a new challenge.
What Would You Say Your Style Is?
The girls in the office say my style is 'edgy' but I'd say I switch it up a lot because I do love to keep following new trends.
What Are Your Day To Day Tasks?
My main tasks are monitoring sales, sample developments, price negotiations, fit sessions and liaising with the other teams to make sure everyone is on the same page.
What Is The Best Part Of Being A Buyer?
You get a pretty good thrill seeing your styles from sketch to store and creating new best sellers. I also love how we get the first pick of the samples!
What’s Your Favourite Task You’ve Worked On So Far?
I bought the whole Tennessee collection! This was my first Influencer campaign. It was so stressful but the finished products looked unreal and it sold really well!
What Advice Would You Give To Someone Who Wants To Get Into Fashion?
Get as much experience as possible! Take all the internships you can get. I ended up hiring our intern full time and it was the best decision I ever made!
