How can I find a job in a high-end retail store, maybe a boutique?

Thanks in advance for anything helpful. If I am a university student with no experience at all, is there any chance I could get hired? I don't really care for the pay, as long as it's not volunteering, because sales would really help with my major, marketing. I really would prefer jobs in clothing stores, preferably high-end, brand names or designer boutiques? Is it too presumptious of me? If so, what experience would i need first? Btw, I do have interest in fashion, fine art background etc Much appreciated.. I have been applying to expensive clothing stores since high school for summer jobs as clerks etc, but never got any replies. I assume it's because I have no experience at all. How do I overcome this disadvantage in employer's eyes?

Just apply! Make sure you are dressed well. Not overly trendy, but something that is more you. You may want to start at a local store because they would be more apt to hiring you, but just try everywhere, you never know who may hire you.
