June Horne

Remember when you first heard of a buyer?  The mind moved quickly from, ‘You can get paid for shopping?’ to ‘How can I be down?’.   But if everyone could do it it’d hardly be a profession.  When it comes to black women holding down that particular hustle, June Horne is a leader.  Since the early 70’s she’s been with Saks 5th Avenue.  Rising through the ranks she currently serves as a senior buyer.  That means a front row seat at shows from here to Europe and a closet full of envy.
