Got to Fashion Retail Manager Cover Letter        Go to Fashion Model Cover Letter

In our first fashion cover letter sample, Simon Hamilton is a retail Fashion Manager seeking a Fashion Director post. The second is a model cover letter example in which, Natasha Sinclair, a Model with five years experience applies for an advertised modelling assignment. The rules governing the construction of both letters applies equally to other fashion professionals such as designers and buyers. Both samples have been designed for use as templates to help you write your own letters and can be used by all professionals from every fashion related discipline.

Both fashion cover letters follow the same rules. Firstly, they are short and to the point, written in three paragraphs. Aim to write using 3-5 short paragraphs. In both letters, the applicants confirm their interest in the jobs and briefly explain why they feel ideally suited.

In the middle part of both our fashion cover letter samples, both candidates go on to explain their current and previous roles and demonstrate use of skills that relate to the jobs they are seeking. If you are in fashion design or are a fashion buyer, mention your daily remit and the skills associated with the job description.

In the third and final paragraph, both letters end with the applicants restating their interest in the vacant positions and re-affirmating their suitability. Always start and end your own letters in this upbeat and confident fashion.

Dear Ms Kronkite,

Re: (Enter Position / Ref here)

I am applying to the vacant Fashion Director position which I believe will enable me to capitalise on my qualifications and professional experience; allowing me to advance my career within fashion retail management. The position is an ideal opportunity for progression in view of my relevant experience and achievement within fashion retailing.

As evidenced in my CV, I have gained eleven years' progressive experience within fashion retailing. I am presently attached as Fashion Manager at XYZ Fashions where I was instrumental in introducing a comprehensive range of branded mens and ladies fashion apparels which raised turnover by a significant 30%. I also reduced aging stock levels from 40% of gross sales down to 20%. In addition, I put in place improved sales, purchase and expense forecasting for budget and profitability management. Prior to this I worked as General Manager at IJKLM Stores in the Middle East for five years and successfully established a chain of twelve high-class fashion outlets, located in Dubai, Jeddah, Riyadh and Cairo.

Having researched your organization, I believe I am a suitable candidate for the vacant Fashion Director position in view of my qualifications, experience successful track record introducing winning fashion brands and my long term interest in the fashion retail industry. I hope therefore, that on consideration of my resume, you will be persuaded of my potential to perform well as Fashion Director at ABCDEF Fashions. Meanwhile, I look forward to your response.
