BUYING ESSENTIALS #1


In this set of guides, I give you the insight you need to grow your fashion brand and to utilise the skills and experience I've gained as a fashion buyer.

Does buying feel like a bit of a minefield? Do things just crop up and you're not quite ready for them? Do you feel like you spend most of your day firefighting and learning on the job? Help get ahead of what's next with this insight into the industry. 

Guide #1 includes free templates of both the critical path and buying calendar to utilise for your business. 

Buying Calendar: I discuss how to manage the key dates in your business and how to have good working relationships with your suppliers. How to split out your range across the year, the right time to bring styles in and what you should be thinking about and when to ensure that you're on time for marketing, photo shoots and the events that crop up through the year! 

Cost prices and negotiation: My comprehensive guide to negotiating cost prices includes giving you the right formulas to use and how to get the most from your supply base. 

Critical path: Ensuring that deliveries are on time and correct is a challenge for every brand. This guide covers management of the critical path and the buying calendar and includes free templates of these documents.

Range Planning: This guide covers the initial stages of the development process; including range planning and building the range. It gives insight into how to build a profitable and exciting range for your customer and how to split out your range by supplier, price, colour and style.
