dc.description.abstractThe author summarizes her experience with the retail store called The Buckle, explaining the history and organization of the store and then details of how the store operates. The image of a team working with its "teammates" "teamleaders" and "guests" is explained to making The Buckle different from other clothing stores. As a "teamleader,” the author learned how to handle delicate situations with other employees, as well as the public. She also learned about merchandising on the sales floor and the importance of product knowledge. The second part of the paper is on the subject of the role of clothing in the consumers’ lives. This paper is directed toward answering the following questions: What is fashion? Who decided what is fashionable? Why do people need clothing? Why people wear the clothes that they do? How do social changes affect clothing consumption?en_US
