Assist the buying team by creating weekly selling reports, creating and updating product overview sheets, modifying buy sheets to match the current predicted trends for upcoming seasons and assist with preparing new store selling strategies.


Working on a project with the exec merchandiser to create collaboration concepts for a pop up shop. This project was really creative and I got to contribute a lot of my own ideas to it and some of them are going to be implemented in the future.

What advice would you give?

If you want to go into luxury, look for internships in the fall or spring to really see the fast paced interworkings of the brand. Also never be afraid to reach out to people for advice, networking or simply just saying hi because who you know will help you succeed in the future.
