5 MINUTES WITH TANYA
Q: Your position at Katies
A: I’m a merchandise planner, so my focus is making sure we have the right stock in
each and every one of our stores when our customer needs it. There are a lot of
numbers involved, but I also get to work really closely with our buying and design
team which helps to mix it up a bit and ensures I never have the same day twice!
Q: How do you adapt this for work at Katies?
A: It’s super easy really! A lot of what I wear comes from our range so I feel really
lucky that I get to work for a brand that suits my style. The fashion denim and smart
pants make for really versatile desk-to-date outfits, and our exclusive prints
are the perfect mix of classic and feminine.
Q: Favourite part of your job
A: One of my favourite things about the job is being able to work across multiple
functions of the business, as well as how closely I get to work with the product.
Watching the evolution from concept to finished piece is never dull, and the
innovative ideas that our visual merchandising and marketing teams come up
with is pretty inspiring.
Q: Your most useful styling tip
Love what you wear – No matter what.
