- Excellent commercial awareness
- Communication skills
- Confidence and presentation skills
- Ability to make decisions under pressure
- Negotiation skills

Each department has a set of skills and responsibilities, all of which were highlighted this morning. In the case of a buyer, there are various levels one goes through starting off as an admin buyer to intern buyer, making their way up as the assistant buyer and senior buyer of a specific division and finally the head of the buying department.
On discussing the real time fashion event with my fellow classmates we shortlisted three ideas for the event, a garage sale, an after party at a club and a fashion bazaar. On further discussion and voting we decided on choosing a garage sale as the theme of our event along with a few changes to it. This event will help us understand how a fashion event is planned and fulfil our duties for the same.
