“The design team at Oasis are incredible, continuously bouncing new and exciting ideas off of each other, which helps to drive the brand forward.”
Why did you apply to work for us?
I have always had a love of fashion and having worked in the industry for a few years I could see that boohoo was becoming the leading brand within the fashion industry. The company is constantly evolving to keep up to date with the ethical changes in fashion whilst still maintaining their quality and style.
What’s the best thing about working for us?
My team! The design team at Oasis are incredible, continuously bouncing new and exciting ideas off of each other, which helps to drive the brand forward. Every day I am surrounded by creativity and passion which makes work life thoroughly enjoyable.
How would you describe the culture?
Inspiring and motivational. You will never find more passionate and inspiring colleagues to work with.
What do you get up to in your role? What makes it different compared with other similar roles you’ve had?
As a print designer I am continuously creating innovative prints for every department within the brand, from Wovens to Knitwear to Occasionwear. The print direction stems from our initial research into the new trends being shown on the catwalk, or current street style. My experience at Oasis differs from previous roles I have had as the speed of working at boohoo is significantly faster. We are constantly reacting to the newest fashion finds to ensure we remain the leading brand within the industry.
How has your career developed since you’ve worked here? E.g. development opportunities, role changes?
Since starting my career at boohoo I have been given many opportunities to develop in my role. I began here as the sole print designer for the Oasis brand which gave me the opportunity to showcase my ability as a designer. Through learning and developing within my role, and working under inspiring leadership, I was fortunate to earn promotion to Junior Print Designer within a short period of time.
What’s been your biggest achievement/proudest moment so far?
I started working at Oasis at the time the brand was purchased by boohoo. The brand started with 4 members on the design team; through our love for the brand and drive to make it the best it could be, within 3 months we were able to create beautiful and trend led collections facilitating the brands revival.
What makes someone successful here?
Your love for fashion. It is a fast-paced industry but loving what you do and being agile within your role allows you to thrive within boohoo. Every idea is welcome as there is never a hesitation in trying something new.
What do you think makes us unique as an employer?
The variety of people you are fortunate to work and socialise with because of the number of brands which are a part of the boohoo family.
