Dear Needle and Thread,

I am writing regarding the studio internship as advertised on the Ravensbourne Agency website,

I am currently in my second year studying BA Fashion. After viewing the internship role and visiting your website I felt my skills perfectly fit into your brands design and style. 

During my studies at Ravensbourne I have gained experience and skills within the industry  including  creating spec drawings, digital print designs, hand embellishment, embroidery and pattern cutting skills. I have also undertaken several work placements to widen my skills and knowledge within the industry varying from bridal to high street.

I feel my skills would work well within the Needle and Thread brand. This would be an amazing opportunity for me and I look forward to hearing from you,

Sincerely

Chloe Bates

Step 3 – the orders are then picked from the stock room and placed on shelves ready to be packaged
