1) Tell us a bit about your role as Buyer…

My role as a buying assistant is to assist the senior buyers on anything they need to make sure the buying process runs as smoothly as possible. Day to day I do all the buying administration work, I deal with all our suppliers and any issues they have, I work closely with our warehouse to ensure all the stock comes in and then out to our stores as quick as possible and I also fit all the QUIZ clothes with the Quality Control department! I am constantly busy but I love what I do, every day is different and I’m always learning something new.

2) How did you get into Buying as a career?

My family work in fashion, so it’s always been something I wanted to pursue as a career. I studied International Fashion Branding at university and it was there I was sent a job advertisement for QUIZ, I applied and after 2 interviews  I got my dream job!

3) What advice would you give to someone who wants to get in to the fashion industry

I would advise to get as much fashion experience as possible. Whether it’s working in retail shops while your studying or even interning at a fashion head office it’s important to show your determined to have a career in the fashion industry so work really hard and show your employers your someone who they need in their team! Even if it doesn’t work out where you interned, it looks great on your CV to other companies.

4) My #OOTD at work consists of?

Almost every day I wear trainers! I’m always on my feet and running about the office getting things done so comfortable footwear is a must. I love trainers right now, they are so easy to wear with everything.

5) Where do you get your style inspo from?

I wouldn’t say I have one icon in particular. I like to dress quite simple but with my own edge to it, I’m also a sucker for anything pink & girly. I follow a lot of bloggers and retailers on Instagram – I get a lot of inspo from there!

6) The last fashion item I bought?

I have recently bought clogs!! I’ve started to see them in a few shops and I loved my mums back in the 90’s so I thought I would get myself a pair for summer, I think they might be the new wedge this season.

7) What’s your holiday destination for summer 2016?

This summer I’m traveling around Greece! I’m visiting 4 islands including Santorini & Mykonos I can’t wait!

8) Before summer vacay, what colour do you get your nails painted?

I always get a bright colour because it looks great with a tan. Last year I went an aqua blue shade. This year I’m thinking of going a bright red/orange colour, I love this colour right now and I think it will go with most of outfits I have planned.

9) What’s your fave holiday cocktail?

Nothing beats drinking a frozen strawberry daiquiri with a fancy straw on the beach! It’s the first drink I order on holiday – puts me right in the holiday spirit.

10) Who would be a part of your summer girl squad?

Kendall Jenner & Gigi Hadid would defo be in my squad, I love what they wear and they seem like a lot of fun… I could also get near their bestie Justin Bieber 😉

11) What’s you summer jam right now?

I’m lovingggg Justin Timberlake’s new song Cant Stop the Feeling. I love when it comes on the office, gets me so excited for summer!
