Over 10 years experience in selection buying working in the fashion sector with some of the worlds most renowned premium and luxury fashion brands.
My in-depth knowledge built across Off price buying at Cocosa was the foundation of my buying career. Connecting with the brands and building relationships allowed us to have continued and long standing successful partnerships.
One of my core strengths is negotiating during the acquisition of brands, along with strategising a plan to offer great brand adjacencies and fabulous STR %.
My diverse experience spreads across full price and off price fashion within e-commerce and traditional stores.
I am not afraid of new challenges and am looking to further develop my career.
