|Our tour by one of the merchandisers at Saks 5th Ave...|
For two days this week, I attended a fab fashion workshop with Berkeley College. The first day we all headed into the city and went to NES Jewelry and learned about the showroom and marketing. It was pure bliss with accessories everywhere! Next up was One Jeanswear Group that has leading brands that covers all types of fashion demographics. Many of the different workers spoke about what they specifically do and the daily roles they play in the industry. We even had the honor to listen to the CEO himself!
The second day was a blast and we spent it at Saks 5th Ave (which has always been one of my favorite places). Our fantastic tour guide, John, lead us through all 10 floors of the store and explained the reasoning for the store arrangement, the history, and some of their merchandising techniques.
