Dear Ms. Downs,

Considering your women-owned, women-led studio and factory is the most celebrated in Soho, I was excited to see your opening for a boutique facilitator on your website. With my 4 years as a facilitator and 9 years in the industry, I believe I can help put the right face and trim on your celebrated store.

You say in your ad that you’d like a facilitator with excellent communication skills who can increase client-facing time, deliver exemplary customer service, and maintain the highest professional standards. Last year at Balenciaga Boutique, I increased client-facing time by 30% thanks to superior communication skills. Because of the high level of customer service I maintained, management presented me with the prestigious Fashion Professional of the Year Award for top-scorers in quarterly customer satisfaction surveys.

My resume will show you more of the skills and requirements you’re seeking in your next boutique facilitator. May we set aside some time for a chat about how I can help your sellers shine?

Kind regards,

Janice Walton

Boutique Facilitator

3. Use a personal greeting and an engaging first paragraph

  • Write a fashion-forward first paragraph.
  • Mention the job opening that interests you.
  • Tell them your years of fashion job experience and add a Hermes-style achievement.

4. Prove you’re the right applicant in paragraph #2

  • Mention the requirements from the fashion job ad.
  • Highlight a couple Fendi-level achievements from your resume.
  • Match your work history details to the job posting.
  • Promise they’ll see more in your fashion resume.

Start with the right plan. See our guide: Cover Letter Outline as Suggested by Career Experts

5. Explain why you want to join their fashion team

  • Say something you like about the fashion business.
  • Prove there’s a reason you applied to this job over all the others.
  • Do this in any of your three paragraphs.
  • This step shows employers you’ll be a dedicated employee.

Yikes! Data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows U.S. fashion manufacturing has dropped 80% in 20 years. The good news? Retail and wholesale fashion jobs remain the same.

6. Offer something at the end of your fashion cover letter

  • Mention a benefit they want.
  • Ask for the interview.
  • Promise to talk about how you can help their fashion business.

7. Add a professional sign-off to the end

  • End by repeating your full name, email, and phone number.
  • Include a digital signature to dodge the off-the-rack look.

Don’t rest on your laurels. Follow up each week (for a few weeks) with a short email or phone call. Learn more: Job Application Follow-Up Email Templates
