    Do work experience or get a job with a high street fashion retailer. Recruiters for fashion buyers love this as it shows they have an 'insight into the fashion industry'. It helps to have a fashion or buisness related degree as you said, but it is not neccessary to have it.

    Check for graduate programmes for fashion buyers like Arcadia, bhs- maybe? TK maxx. Inretail.co.uk- has more info for grad recruiters. Check prospects.ac.uk for further advice on routes into buying as well.
