Workers with a love of fashion are now turning to eco-friendly companies to blend their personal interests with their values. This has resulted in an exciting rise in sustainable fashion careers.
Most of these fashion jobs have emerged from fashion companies’ increased commitments to reducing waste and pollution in their production methods.
Also included in this movement are fashion companies that keep unwanted clothing out of landfills by giving them a new life on the secondhand market.
For example, at Crossroads we’ve put the buy-sell-trade fashion model in front of our business for over 30 years. We’re proud to be a part of the sustainable secondhand fashion movement, and we’re always on the lookout for talent across the country.
Our employees learn the entire secondhand retail process, from buying pre-loved clothing from the public to merchandising it for shoppers.
They learn which fashion labels have excellent resale value and discover which sustainable brands are popular with customers.
With knowledge of how sustainable fashion works, they have an excellent base for future roles. Many have gone on to become fashion designers, corporate buyers, and marketers.
