Dear Hiring Manager:

I am seeking the opportunity to apply myself to the advertised position of Assistant Buyer. I have been a longtime follower of your company and I am excited this position is available.

This position will enable me to capitalize my professional experience and progress within the fashion industry. While reflecting upon my experience and my career aspirations, an Assistant Buying position is a suitable prospect. I have an academic background in international fashion business and I have worked within the retail industry for nearly three years now. I desire a fresh challenge, to build upon the relevant skills that I have already attained and develop skills to further my career goals.

Having a sharp eye for colour and detail I am able to spot the latest trends, that I am confident, will sell at a glance. Being an excellent communicator and leader I am always willing to collaborate and work closely with others to ensure that everyone is on the same page. For instance, throughout my trend forecasting module at university, I lead a team of five individuals to produce a trend magazine on women formal and work wear. Being editor and chief I was able to gain important interpersonal skills as well as time management. I learned that through various ups and downs, hard work and initiative aways pays off.

I live and breath fashion, not only was it my choice of study, fashion is my chosen lifestyle. I regularly attend fashion shows, I read up to date publications as well as visit up and coming retail establishments to gain knowledge of whats innovative.

After studying fashion for the past three years, I am familiar with the purchasing principles and practices that are involved with retail math. I am confident that I will succeed in providing operational support to buyers and together I believe we will be able to drive sale volumes, and increase full price sell-thru objectives all while achieving the appropriate gross margin.

I believe I am suitable for this position for that I wish to utilize the current skills I posses as well as develop new ones for the long-term aspirations I have within the retailing industry. The skills and qualities that my CV reflects are highly relevant for this position, along with my enthusiasm and commitment would be exceedingly valuable to your organization throughout a number of areas. Attached is a copy of my CV for your perusal. Meanwhile, I look forward to hearing from you soon.
