30 under 30: Kiefer Ramiro

Customer advisor and buyer, Number Six, aged 22

Kiefer Ramiro

Kiefer Ramiro

Two years into his career in fashion and Kiefer Ramiro is learning the ropes first hand from Mark Batista, owner of fashion retailer Number Six and founder of London menswear trade show Jacket Required. However, it was as customer advisor at young fashion independent Attic Clothing in Aberdeen two years ago that he really cut his teeth. He admits that “pre-2010 I was oblivious to things like selvedge denim”.

Providing great customer service and having a snappy dress sense have helped him get ahead. “There’s a saying that I put into action: ‘Dress for the position you want, not the one you have.’ Thankfully, my previous manager did notice this and recommended me for the position I currently have at Number Six.”

He describes the move from Aberdeen to London in April 2012 as the biggest of his career, putting him “in the thick of it”. Upon arrival he attended
a six-week short course at the London College of Fashion on buying and merchandising.

Ramiro has clear aspirations for the future. “Once I have achieved proven sell-through with the buying, I may look more into coming off the shopfloor and further my career elsewhere within the industry.”
