Inside Missguided- Victoria
Inside Missguided is the new docuseries series that will be hitting the small screen on Wednesday 12th August at 10pm. The show takes an unfiltered look behind the scenes of our chaotic and fast-paced working environment. We opened the doors of the Manchester HQ to a camera crew, to show them what really goes on at Missguided. From fashion design to collaborations, there’s an insight into the whole business. We chatted to cast member and our Head of Buying, Victoria, to find out more.
Head of Buying
How long have you been at Missguided?
Nearly 4 years
Where did you previously work and how did you land the role at MG?
Worked at River Island head office previously. I got head hunted to work for MG, just as I was flying to Santorini to get married. 3 interviews later, I thought I’d give it a shot and left London to make the move to Manchester.
What is a day in the life like for you at work?
It’s like a jigsaw trying to make all the parts fit, there’s never enough hours in the day. It’s chaotic, creative and amazingly energising. The pressure is intense which is why you have to love the job you do, it keeps you going.
How did you find being on camera?
Hated it, just didn’t feel natural.
Favourite part of the job?
Living and breathing fashion every single day with an amazing buying team for an incredible brand where the opportunities are limitless.
What keeps you motivated?
Doing something I love. At the end of the day we get to buy clothes- who doesn’t want to do that!
What was the trickiest project you’ve worked on and why?
Being promoted to Head of Buying, just before we hit a time where redundancies had to be made. It was horrible and a really low point in my career.
What is your favourite Missguided Campaign and why?
Love Thy Self– love the music, the attitude- it symbolises the brand for me.
