Fashion Buying Course Description
What Does Professional Fashion Buying Involve?
Fashion Buying involves international travel to key fashion cities like London, Paris, Tokyo and New York, with very large shopping budgets! A fashion buyer determines what trends are going to be in for the season, and is in charge of what styles a retail store or boutique will stock.
Fashion Buying is a highly sought after job, yet there is not much training available to those interested in this career path.
La Mode’s ‘Certificate in Professional Fashion Buying ’ is a fast track program designed to teach the key skills that are required to become a fashion buyer,
and equip you with all the knowledge needed to land your dream job in the industry!
