Event Description

What a Buyer Wants: Learn what it takes to sell your line

Thursday, March 15

1pm EST / 10am PST / 6pm GMT

Mercedes R. Gonzalez has been a buyer in the garment industry since 1988.

Her passion for the industry started when she was 14 years old and went to work every summer for her uncle who owned and operated a manufacturing company in the heart of the garment district in New York. After graduating from New York University where she earned her degree in economics, she went back to work full time with her uncle. She changed the operation of the company by moving production overseas, streamlining the company and insuring a stronger bottom line.

 As Director of Global Purchasing Companies, Mercedes R. Gonzalez serves as a consultant for young fashion designers and boutique owners. In this session of The Academy, Mercedes shares what a buyer wants to see from designers, and what it really takes for a designer to be successful. During this informative session, she’ll teach you how to learn about your market, analyze your product, ensure that your brand is clear, and avoid common beginner’s mistakes.

If you have a flair for design and a desire to create your own line, this engaging, informative session will show you how to set up and run your business and help get your clothes into the department stores and boutiques.
