How did It happen that you started to work at New Yorker?
In 1989 I visited the Kieler Woche exhibition and found out about New Yorker. When the concept was introduced to me in a store, I liked it a lot. At this time I still lived in Denmark and already knew New Yorker from when I visited Flensburg. It all happened very quickly, and soon I was area manager in Hamburg. At that time New Yorker had 44 stores and I approached my task with great expectations – also for the rest of Germany. After spending some time with New Yorker in Dresden I knew everything about sales and in 2001 I moved to Braunschweig to work at the Purchasing department. My field is Purchasing for Menswear (HAKA), and Jeans are my speciality.
What does your typical working day look like?
Inspiration and quality come first for me. I cooperate very closely with Product Development and Design at the headquarters and take a look at the designs presented to me. We develop the collections and work together till their launch. I also visit a lot of trade fairs: Tokyo, New York, London are a good source of inspiration for us with regard to trends and fashion, and show what happens on the market. Once you have a clear vision of the style, you have to be focused and be able to bring the trends into the stores at a high quality. The speed in fashion can be quite brutal, but it is a challenge I face daily.
What was your best moment at New Yorker?
At New Yorker everything happens very fast and for me it is a great journey. My best moment: Our claim "Dress for the moment" was born, this was in the early nineties. We celebrated the opening of a new store in Dresden. It was a huge spectacle and we were all caught in this uplifting spirit. Every new country you enter, every new employee coming along with vigour and inspiration, these are all great moments for me, and they are too many to list them all here.
Whether with or without aviator glasses – it's up to you. You can already show your fashion skills during the job interview, but there is something much more important for us: We want you to be at ease. Don't put on a costume, after all we want to get to know you the way you actually are, from head to toe!
Motivation is of the highest importance for us and is definitely expected from you. We want to see your energy and commitment for fashion and want to know about your goals. You can express that in a motivational letter. However, this is just as important: Make sure that your application documents are complete. Your current certificates, your curriculum vitae, evidence of professional development and internships provide us with a first impression about you. To complete your application we would love to have a photo of you and then you might hear from us soon: Welcome on board!
