September 19, 2023 A Peek into Jobs in Sustainable Fashion

Jobs in sustainable fashion have been catching the eye of fashion lovers looking to kick off their careers. They want to share their fashion talents while taking part in the global effort to reduce fashion waste.

One of the best ways to get started is with a retail job for s sustainable fashion company, where you can learn about seasonal trend forecasting for styles and labels, customer shopping habits, and the best textiles and materials on the market.

For example, you could work retail for brands that solely produce sustainable clothing. You’ll learn about their special manufacturing processes and ethically sourced textiles.

Or, at a fashion resale store like Crossroads, you can also learn about fashion buying. Our fashion buyers stock our racks and shelves by purchasing pre-loved clothing directly from the public every day. In this role, they learn how to assess and price clothing based on current trends, styles, and customer demand. They enjoy stocking our stores with unwanted clothing that will have a second life with a new owner.
