Visual Merchandiser job responsibilities were, but not limited to, ensuring that all "new production" was successfully placed and coordinated by trend onto the selling floor by visual team, this included all handbags and accessories. Styling also was very important, so on a daily basis 4 to 5 mannequins would be styled complete with wig styling and accessories. Garment allocations of a particular floor were also my responsibility, so I had to keep in close contact with our international warehouses.
