July 20, 2023 Get Started: How to Work in Fashion

If you love styling your looks each morning, you’ve probably wondered how to work in fashion. After all, wouldn’t it be amazing to bring your fashion skills to a job every day and work with people who share this passion?

How to Work in Fashion: Getting Started

Working in fashion retail is one of the best ways to get started. You’ll learn about fashion merchandising, seasonal trend forecasting, and client relations. You’ll see firsthand which styles and pieces are customer favorites. Best of all, you’ll start a network of fashion-loving teammates.

At Crossroads, we offer an even better retail education to our teams. Our fashion buyers learn how to buy clothing from the public, hand-picking the styles, labels, and trends that we stock on our store racks. This fashion-buying experience means they get to see how their curated pieces sell in-store.

Along with learning about fashion buying, our employees learn how to style our mannequins from our unique racks of secondhand gems, plan for seasonal transitions, and authenticate designer pieces for resale.
