RE: Fashion Designer, August 18, 2014
Dear Ms. VladimÌ_ra,
As a highly skilled Fashion Designer, I read your posting for a new Fashion Designer with interest. My experience aligns well with the qualifications you are seeking at VladimÌ_ra Boutique, in particular my role as a Fashion Designer at The Jessie McGuire Group, and I am certain I would make a valuable addition to your organization.
With more than 9 years’ experience as a Fashion Designer, I am adept in CAD softwares, project budgeting, and time management. Moreover, while my on-the-job experience has afforded me a well-rounded skill set, including first-rate attention to detail and creativity, I excel at:
- Client relations
- Contract negotiations
- Researching and analyzing market trends
In addition to my experience and personal qualities, I have a solid educational foundation and a passion for fashion design. I am extremely enthusiastic about
VladimÌ_ra Boutiques’ focus on French apparel and would welcome the opportunity to contribute to your in-house design initiatives.
Please review my attached resume for additional details regarding my expertise and abilities. I will follow up to request an appointment to discuss how my experience and background meets your needs.
Thank you for your time and consideration.

Dear Ms Jones
Re: Retail Assistant and Relief Store Manager position, Ref: FR872
Please accept this letter and the accompanying resume as my application for the position of Retail Assistant and Relief Store Manager advertised in the The Age. I have more than three years' experience in Fashion retail, a career path I wish to pursue as I follow fashion trends religiously, enjoy the store environment, and thrive on helping customers find what they want.
While working in the women's fashion department of a department store and at a fashion boutique, I provided outstanding customer service, resolved disputes, trained new staff members and assisted management with stock merchandising. Feedback from store managers was that I had demonstrated an excellent understanding of selling principles and the five-step approach to customer service. I was praised for my ability to work with others and was given the responsibility of organising merchandise and stock inventories while working for DressMe.
My inhouse training in retail security, loss prevention, OH&S and merchandising has complemented skills learned in my Certificate III in Retail Operations, recently completed through TAFE. This qualification recognises that I have successfully acquired skills in customer service, merchandising and product management, and that I have a solid knowledge of retail policies and processes.
I have a strong record of contributing to team projects and ideas: in my work and during secondary school. For example, I was captain of The Bouncers basketball team and enjoyed contributing to team projects such as the Year 12 Yearbook committee and charity fundraiser days.
I believe my skills and experience can contribute to the smooth running of Fashionista's Collins Street retail store and I am excited about the opportunity to contribute to the success of your retail brand generally.
