Dear Ms. Kutrane,

I am very interested in the Fashion Design position posted in the May issue of Dress Up magazine. Having graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising as a Fashion Design major, I believe I have the appropriate preparation and training for the responsibilities that this job entails. (Must specifically address the position desired as well as the website or publication of the job advertisement.)

My love for fashion began when I first picked up an issue of Sixteen magazine. While flipping through the pages, I started to make connections between which items of clothing looked the best with the other items. I realized that creating those clothes as well as styling them on a person is what I wanted to do as a career. Shortly after this epiphany, I began a fashion blog. I collected random pictures of different items and compiled them into posts, then wrote a little spiel on why I believed they were appropriate for each other. This served as my portfolio and assisted my admittance into FIDM. (Can give some background as to how you became interested in the field of Fashion.)

My training at FIDM helped me to translate the fashion concepts into tangible items. I learned how to sketch clothes, craft collections, sew, make patterns, and present them to an audience. I have developed a sense of the esthetic and built on my creativity since then, and because of this I know I can be a valuable asset to your company. As a regular customer at Guess Inc., I am well aware of the style of clothing and have some ideas prepared that will help build upon Guess Inc.’s already established success. (Describe your experience in Fashion. Express what you learned and how you can benefit their company.)

I would like the opportunity to meet with you. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me by phone at (555) 555-5555 or by email at (Give contact information.)

Thank you for your consideration. My résumé is attached. I look forward to scheduling an interview where I can talk more about my qualifications and show you my portfolio. (Express gratitude for their time.)
