Dear Ms. Adams,
I am writing this cover letter today to apply for the job of Fashion Assistant, which was advertised on www.monsterjobs.com.
Throughout my entire university course, I have gained a variety of work experience, including my position at Miami Fashion Week and in Vogue magazine style department. It can be easily seen from the designs that I have included in my attached portfolio that I have a good flair of textures and colors. Also, I have an innate understanding about the latest trends and I am well competent in working with maximum fabrics. I have tremendous artwork and illustration skills and I have achieved the award of the best Student Designer of the Year in the last year of my college. I love working with lace and silk design for feminine pieces, and I enjoy experimenting with my own creations at my workshop.
My current job at Verve Fashion, where I am working since the past two years, has allowed me to get involved in various departments of fashion. I got the chance to decide from fabric and designs, assisting distribution and cutting. This is a smaller organization and I think I have gained enough experience and ready to move to a bigger organization.
I have been one of the most loyal customers at Witchery Clothing for many years and I would consider it as an honor to work with your clothing line. I am extremely passionate about fashion, fabrics and clothes and I have believed that, my combination of employment and unpaid work experience gave me all the required skills to become an excellent fashion assistant at Witchery Clothing.
I would like to meet you in person at your time and convenience. You can contact me at 475-275-3756 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Write your cover letter in the similar manner and let your writing skills speak.
