a career with ivivva: meet Sabrina
Do you LOVE fashion and are always buried deep in fashion magazines, checking out the latest trends in colour and prints?
Are you the girl that your friends come to for advice on cute outfits – whether it is for dance rehersal, a night at the movies, or running around during gym class?
Then you could be a perfect Merchandise Associate for ivivva!
What does that mean? Who better to explain to you the world of Merchandising than Sabrina Yu - ivivva’s amazing Merchandise Associate!
Sabrina holds an extremely important role on the ivivva team: each season she decides which awesome new ivivva gear we should have in the stores!
We asked Sabrina what she loves about the most about her job:
“…My favourite part of my job is hearing the feedback from the ivivva girls and looking for opportunities to bring even better clothing to them in the future. In a strange way it’s like being able to create the future.
…It’s a perfect mixture of everything. I get to work with technical-fashion, online story-telling through social media and blogs, and creating financial sales plans to build our business.”
Right now Sabrina is picking the new colours and styles to come out next Spring!
If this is a career that you would love, here are some things that Sabrina did to be excellent at her job:
“I’ve been working in retail since I was 15! I’ve worked in large retailers, boutiques, and department stores where I was given a ton of exposure to working with apparel, visual merchandising, and daily sales.
I’m super passionate about making connections between fashion and numbers. I have spent a lot of time analyzing numbers to see how certain styles affect our business.
I’m also super passionate about product. I care deeply about providing high quality, highly functional gear to our ivivva girls. I’m uber picky so that only the best makes it to the shelves. Even down to the buttons – all of the little details count!”
Let us know what you think ivivva girls! Can you see yourself in this role one day at ivivva head office?
