Holly McMahon

International Fashion Buying Management BA(Hons)

I am an outgoing, enthusiastic and motivated fashion graduate who has a strong passion for a career in fashion buying. I have strong creative visions and enjoy keeping up-to-date on upcoming trends.

I am a self-starter and enjoy working as a team, including working with other students during our Advanced Fashion Project and as well as working as a part-time trainee Merchandiser.

In my third year, I decided to do a placement year at Freemans, an online catalogue retailer which has made me confident working in a fast-paced office environment, including working with essential buying software.

I am confident and professional when presenting to panels with the experience of doing so in final year and seasonal handovers with the CEO and board from placement. Project Management is a key skill to me, which I have perfected throughout final year. For every project, I now create a realistic critical path map, to ensure every element of any task I am set is completed, ensuring deadlines are met on time.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the past four years at Huddersfield and I am now seeking new, exciting opportunities to kick start my career in the world of fashion buying.
