Splendid, a division of VF Corporation

Assistant Buyer

After working for Splendid over the summer I was gratuitously allowed to come back over my winter break to work again. This time my role was in a buying capacity. I worked closely with the head Splendid buyer as she taught me the ins and outs of the buying business. I was also given the opportunity to buy the men's line, Splendid Mills, and work on various small projects. One of the biggest things I did was have the opportunity to provide my viewpoint on how the men's line should be bought and other ideas for the business. Overall, it was an amazing experience that provided me with a ton of valuable information that will help in my next buying role.

Splendid, a division of VF Corporation

Merchandising Intern

I worked with the merchandising team on day-to-day functions such as booking reports, design meeting sit ins, line sheet reviews, and organizing and being in charge of the merchandising closet. Also, I was in charge of compiling the weekly selling data, from wholesale and retail, and turning that into a weekly best seller packet for multiple divisions (Splendid, Splendid Littles, and Ella Moss). Then once a week I would set up a meeting and go over all the information I had compiled along with the rest of the merch team, design, and sales. Additionally, I was able to visit the multiple showrooms Splendid/Ella Moss has and see how our sales teams preps and works to sell the collections to various wholesale outlets. Interning at Splendid was an amazing opportunity that exposed me to almost every end of the process from design, merchandising, sales, and then all the way to production.
