Melbourne is Australia’s Fashion capital, and there are so many creative fashion boutiques and fashion brands! Becoming a Fashion buyer for these brands and stores will allow you to select the stock they carry, attend Fashion week, attend fashion showings, and select the latest trends.

Fashion buyer roles

How Much Do Fashion Buyers Get Paid?

Typically fashion buyers are well paid- one of the highest salaries in the Fashion Industry- due to the fact that you are responsible for large budgets- and selecting the best stock for your store- that will hopefully sell out and make the store money.

Essentially as a fashion buyer you are a business manager. Your job is to know your target market extremely well, and know what your customer wants to buy, and how much they are willing to spend on that item.  You then need to source the items/ brands that your customer wants, and buy the right quantity.

The amount your salary is as a fashion buyer depends on how many stores you are buying stock for, and the budget you are responsible for.

A buyer for a large department store like Myer or David Jones- would have a much higher salary then a buyer for your local boutique that just has one store.

Typical Fashion Buyer Salary Examples For Australia

Junior Fashion Buyer/ Fashion Buyers Assistant: $40,000-$60,000

Fashion Buyer: $ 60,000 – $120,000

Senior Fashion Buyer/ Manager: $120,000 – $200,000

Note: just remember- the amount of stores you buy for, how many categories you buy for, and your budget responsibility will reflect the salary. The more responsibility you have , the higher you get paid.
