Working as an SA at a Luxury Brand?
I see lots of postings for sales associates at local Burberry, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton boutiques, but they all seem to require some previous experience working in a luxury boutique. To begin working in luxury retail requires previous luxury retail experience, so where does someone begin?

Have any of you worked as an SA in any luxury brand boutique? How did you begin? I'm asking because it seems interesting to work there for a year or so to delve into the environment and get to know the brand better.

I would stop by and talk to a manager about how you might gain the experience you need. You could ask if it would help if you had luxury experience from someplace like Nordstrom, working in Collectors, as a Personal Stylist, etc. I know an unpaid internship is a luxury, but is that something you might be able to pull off? I would think that after talking to several managers, you should have multiple useful suggestions ...

There's a need for more individuality today, and my job is to cater to women, not dictate to them.
