Description

Who decides what we are wearing next season? How do the products arrive in stores? Why are some retailers successful and others are not? This is all down to the fashion buyers and merchandisers, the main drivers of any retail business and very influential decision-makers.

This fashion buying course covers the key elements of 'Fashion buying and merchandising 1 and 2'. This online course will give you a unique insight into industry practices, through real case studies and practical projects.

The course includes:

  • The role of the fashion buyer
  • Major fashion retail brands
  • Roles and responsibilities of retail fashion buyers and merchandisers
  • Trade fairs, ready-to-wear and couture shows
  • Trend prediction and seasons
  • Fabric and styling terminology
  • Numeracy and competitor shopping skills
  • Fashion supply chains

The projects you'll be asked to undertake involve mathematical formulae therefore it's essential you have an understanding of maths to GCSE level C or equivalent.


Why choose an LCF online learning short course?

Our online learning short courses allow you to experience London College of Fashion wherever you are in the world. The real-time chat sessions are fully interactive allowing you to communicate easily with the tutor at the same time as fellow students. You will participate in the live classes each week and you will undertake weekly assignments to be completed in your own time. 


Online learning:

Please make sure you are available to participate in the live online chat sessions which are run to UK time.

All online learning courses include weekly chat sessions with your tutor and other students on the course, which are conducted through an interactive seminar (called Blackboard Collaborate). The chat sessions will include text and voice/video chat, as well as an opportunity to 'share' your tutor's desktop so that s/he can navigate you through websites, powerpoint presentations and other work. These sessions are essential to attend each week, so please check the times of the course when you book and take into account any local time differences.

You may also be required to undertake weekly assignments between sessions. These will be housed on our Workflow website, along with additional resources and discussion forums which can be used to interact with fellow students in between classes. You may be expected to dedicate between one - two hours a week to these self-study projects. A full technical specification is listed in 'Materials'.
