This is a speculative proposal I'm sending a fashion brand I really want to work with, for no specific job they've advertised or even realize that they need right now.
***Every apostrophe is appearing as ' so I do apologize for this but please know that each of these is just an apostrophe and you're not missing any key information***
The brand is called Discount Universe [login to view URL]
Here's their instagram [login to view URL]
and a link to their most recent collection runway show at New York Fashion Week: [login to view URL] so you can get a feel for them.
In the PDF document, I've drafted up a a proposal that positions me as 'more than just a superfan' (which is what they know me as currently) someone who can add real value to their business, in ways they are not already doing, be it because of resources, or because they simply haven't thought of it.
I want this communication piece to be designed in a way that corresponds to the photos of their most recent NYFW runway show (I've attached the two rotating pics from their home page that seems to be favorites of theirs) so color, leopard print, typography (referenced from the words used on their collection as illustrated above on the [login to view URL] images from the show). Feel free to bring in icons and other graphics to illustrate / emphasize and break up the text heavy body section where it talks about "skillz" and "what this means for DU".
This will be submitted via email, so my question to you is, should this be an email attachment? OR created to be embedded into an email?
The proposal document outlines my specific skill set and what that translates into for their brand in terms of work that I can fulfill for them. Mostly stuff they're not already doing.
So it's a business case presented in a humorous way to get them thinking about how I can fit into their business model. Or where they can create space for me.
In the document there's a reference to the 'evil eye' which is a DU brand icon. For illustrative purposes I've used the an image of a handbag they created, this is probably too large to use so I've attached an image of the DU evil eye bikini as a reference. This sentence is just a play on words that links back to their brand.
There's an intro and and outro that sit outside the colums 'skillz' and 'what this means for DU' so my question is, how are these presented to top and tail the main body which is the ;skillz' matching up with 'what this means for DU'?
I would like to include some of my own branding in there i.e. that the proposal is coming from me The Scarlet Bob (Gemma Sherlock) so here's a link to my website and instagram:

The bob icon is the most recognizable part of my own branding so would be nice to get this in somewhere if possible. Have attached my branding assets for reference / incorporation.
You will see from my instagram and website that there is an obvious synergy between what both of us are doing in terms of feminism and being unapologetically ourselves.
Also, within the 'skillz' section, I have referenced 2 articles that I feel best illustrate the point I am talking about, so my question is what's the best way to present these in the context of the overall piece that will make sense - and keep it matching up with the corresponding action listed in the 'What this means for DU' column.
I know this might be a lot but I'm free to take questions tomorrow. It's 10pm EST right now and I'm going to bed for the night!
Thank you everyone in advance for your responses! I hope you find it fun to work on and can't wait to see what you come up with!
