One of the most important roles in fashion -- especially during Fashion Month -- is that of the buyer: People whose job it is to comb through hundreds of collections to determine what will actually end up in stores six months from now.

Since their opinions are ultimately the most important -- both for designers' bottom lines and consumers' spring wardrobes -- we asked a few of our favorite retailers to give us their top picks from the runways. Our takeaway? There will be lots of Proenza and gladiator shoes in stores next year.

From Barneys to FiveStory to Avenue32, read on to find out what the buyers are buying from the spring 2015 collections.
