We are so excited to introduce you to one of our newest buyers, Diana Mejia-Lugo! 🙂 She is responsible for buying a lot of our Junior's tops & dresses and cute shackets that you've been seeing in our stores. Getting to know her has been absolutely wonderful, and we hope that you'll also enjoy meeting her through this little blog.
Coming from her hometown in Battle Creek, Michigan, (which she said smells like cereal due to their local Kellogg Cereal Factory) Diana is bringing a fresh set of eyes to our Junior's Department! She graduated from Central Michigan University with a Major in Fashion Merchandising and a minor in Fashion Design and another minor in Professional Sales. 👀 Talk about a busy student!! She's also spent some time working for TJ Maxx as well as interning with our Saugatuck Glik's store. After having a taste of the brick and mortar side of retail, Diana was excited to step into her buying position and get to know the business side of things!
The brands that Diana focuses on currently (that we know you already love!) are Acoa Clothing, La Miel, American Bazi, and many, many more. Our junior's business is always bringing in tons of new pieces, and she has 65 stores as well as a growing website to keep stocked in best-selling styles! This pink and grey La Miel shacket was one of her favorite buys since she's joined our team, and we're also just as obsessed with it!! 😍 During our interview, Diana let us know that her favorite part about her job is getting to decide what styles are going to be sold in our stores. She also loves watching to see what our customers end up purchasing to add to their closet collections. We asked her what she thought the next big thing in fashion would be, and she's seeing lots of mixed fabrics and prints in our future!! Can't wait to see all the amazing things she has in store for us this Spring and Summer!!
