Fashion Assistant Buyer Jobs

Fashion Assistant Buyer Overview


Fashion assistant buyers are responsible for keeping stores stocked with apparel, jewelry and accessories. Stores sell fashion and accessories for each of the four seasons; they order winter clothing in the middle of summer and stock clothing for the new season prior to the start of each season. Fashion assistant buyers look at market trends, identify new clothing designers, examine the needs of customers and add or remove clothing at the store on a regular basis. Fashion assistant buyers do not purchase clothing for the shops, but they will work with lead buyers. Assistant buyers examine trends and market conditions and present their findings to the head of the department. Fashion assistants can later work as fashion merchandisers, fashion buyers or in other fashion retail positions.

Fashion Assistant Buyer Education Requirements


Retail buyers only need a high school diploma or the equivalent of a high school diploma before working in the field. Many buyers gain the experience that they need through on-the-job training, and some workers spend years training on the job before moving from an assistant buyer to a buyer. More than 4 percent of buyers possess a degree higher than a bachelor's, and 29 percent of buyers have a bachelor's degree in fashion, marketing or another field. Understanding how point-of-sale software operates and having experience with accounting software is necessary.

The number of fashion assistant buyer jobs is expected to grow from 124,600 in 2012 to 133,500 in 2022. This indicates a growth of 7 percent and an increase of nearly 4,000 jobs. California alone will experience a growth of 17 percent in the next few years. As the number of fashion buying jobs increases, so will the number of assistant positions. Fashion buyers need assistants who can analyze the market and bring in a new point of view on what products are the best for their shoppers.
