My name is Georgia-Lucia Evans and I am a graduate from Southampton Solent University, where I studied (BA) Fashion Buying and Merchandising. As a whole I thoroughly enjoyed studying at Southampton, the staff at the University were always very helpful and the cities nightlife was great.
The course focused on the business of fashion covering buying cycles, sales performance, forecasting, product development, garment sourcing, manufacturing, and brand development. I was lucky enough to attend two of the course trips to Florence and New York City, where we attended trade shows and collected information for our assignments. I would recommend Southampton as I had a great experience there.
