BA Hons Fashion Communication and Marketing Graduate
I am currently working at Animal as a sales consultant, as part of my job role I work on the tills, greet customers and make sure the shop floor is to a high standard. I also get to create visual merchandising inside the store, which involves creating displays and dressing mannequins. I enjoy my job as it has given me a wide range of knowledge, including how people shop and predicting what will be popular with our customers, which plays a big part in what I chose for the displays that I create.
During my time at Wonderland magazine, I was involved in numerous amounts of tasks such as assisting photo-shoots, building a rapport with PR companies and organizing the clothes and accessories for photo-shoots. I had a great amount of responsibility whilst I was there which I took very seriously, and thoroughly enjoyed.
Whilst working at the Sunglasses Shop I broadened my knowledge on selling high-end brands. During my time there I was the top sales consultant selling the most sunglasses, one of my finest achievements was selling 6 pairs of sunglasses to a single customer.
This degree included, digital applications such as Photoshop and Illustrator, fashion illustration, photography, fashion styling and research for marketing reports and essay writing. I have learnt a lot in my 3 years at university and I am now ready to use and adapt my skills in a workplace.
