Do you have questions for Retail Buyers?


"Meet the Buyers" Panel

Thursday, May 30th, 8:30am - 10:00am

Chicago Fashion Incubator, 111 N. State St., Chicago

 Meet the Buyers Panel 

What is it? A diverse panel assembled from local boutiques and online shops will share their approach to making purchasing decisions and what they look for when approached by designers.

What you'll learn:

  • The buying calendar, when are buyers looking for new products
  • How and where buyers look for new lines
  • How to approach a retailer
  • What to expect after you receive an order

Jane Hamill, Director of Designer Education for CFI and Founder of Fashion Brain Academy, is the moderator of this panel.  We'll start by asking each buyer the same question and learn from the different responses. We'll quicl;y open it up to the audience so you can get YOUR questions answered.

This a great chance to get access to buyers that can be very difficult to reach!
