A fashion group that collects trend-setting fashion from talented designers around the world is looking for a replacement visual merchandiser. The Swank Shop gives customers a contemporary, relaxing and unique shopping environment, and surrounds them with clothes and accessories in the best of taste. The visual merchandiser will be expected to participate in brainstorming seasonal window display concepts and maintain excellent shop window, mannequin and accessories displays, said Louisa Yeung, personnel manager at the Swank Shop. Other responsibilities include in-store decoration and collection arrangement, and preparing props and accessories for window and promotional display. Material sourcing for various functions and artwork designs for displays and promotions are essential elements of this highly visual and visible position. One of the bonuses of the creative role is that the new employee could 'help to make a direct impact on the company's image by using his or her innovative ideas and creativity', Ms Yeung said. You should not think of applying for this role unless you have professional training in visual merchandising or graphic design. 'Exposure to luxury fashion visual merchandising' would also be helpful, as was a knowledge of workshop production, a familiarity with Photoshop and Illustrator and 'good dressing techniques', Ms Yeung said.
