Assignment 12

Make a list of five apparel that need special care or storage. Describe how to maintain and store them.

Leather bag - Needs to be lubricate or impregnate and stored in a dustbag when they not in use. Remove dirt with a damp cotton cloth and possibly green or saddle soap. Be sure to wash the whole bag without rubbing too hard or focusing on individual spots which can cause an uneven surface. This advice can of course be used on all leather products. Clothes that are made of wool - The best is to hand wash them and let them plan dry. Store them in a cabinet a drawer that not are near a house wall to avoid moth. Wool likes fresh air. Wind the garment after use. Fur - Do not use direct heat. Need to be store in cabinet that are dark and have air condition. Hang the garment on a broad hanger to keep the shoulders from loosing their shape. Avoid using hairspray or perfume when wearing the garment. Need to be cleaned by a professional fur cleaner Suede - Can´t be wet. Do not rubb on the apparel. Bruh with a soft brush repetitive. If you have a stain you can make it disappear with a special eraser for suede. After you have cleaned your apparel you can use a special spray for suede to fresh it up. Silk - Silk can not withstand high heat and hard working. It´s best to wash silk by hand or in a laundry bag. Do not dry the garment in direct sunlight because silk easily fades.

Assignment 13

Imagine you are a retail buyer for a specific department of a local department store. In a written report, describe items you would buy for your department to sell.

I amagine that I´m the retail buyer for bags on an exclusive department store. The first thing I would do is to check what our bestsellers are and if they are still in fashion for the current season. Then I would check other things there are in fashion for the season. I have been to many fashion shows and fairs. I believe that we have analyzed our target group before. That is a younger business woman, which always is in hurry. She has a good salary and she has no hobbies because of her busy job. She wants bags which are classy, in style and of good quality. I would buy bags in different sizes. Some big enough to carry laptops and a lot of papers. Some smaller to have when she go out with her friends and colleagues. I would buy them in different colors but focus on black and brown and the season’s color that we can put in the window for inspiration. I would buy bags quite more expensive with well-known trademarks and in real good quality. I would also buy some a little bit cheaper that covers some more wallets. I would buy a lot of classic bags usful for several seasons and then some that are in fashion. I would not buy to many different bags because we want it to look exclusive and nice.
