Keep the doors of Courtyard open in Guildford

We are aiming to raise money to keep Courtyard trading and also support the fashion industry which has been hard hit during the lockdown

by Courtyard in Guildford, England, United Kingdom

Courtyard has been an established award winning independent designer clothing store for over 25 years in Angel Gate , Guildford . Having not received any grant from the government we are determined we will  survive in these tough times so that we can continue to serve our loyal customers and keep them looking stylish and fashionable with our carefully curated collections . In turn we will be supporting the hard hit fashion industry from the suppliers , to the designers , to the manufacturers and to the small family run businessesall over the world who work so hard  to create the lovely garments we end up wearing . Courtyard particularly supports  ethically made and sustainable fashion and we are determined to keep these people in work .

We are setting  up a VIP membership which will entitle you to 20% discount  throughout the year, special pre sale offers and VIP  invitation only evenings . You will be able to pick up your special membership card when you come to the store.

A special lucky dip where you can win substantial gift vouchers.

Exclusive  experiences which are normally unavailable to the public such as invites to fashion shows at London Fashion Week and an invitation to Scoop fashion exhibition in London and an opportunity to see behind the scenes by accompanying Julia on her buying trips . 

10% of the  money that is raised plus any money raised above the £25,000  in donations ( not including rewards ) will be given to charities that support ethical and sustainable fashion and also to a charity called  Smartworks. which helps disadvantaged women to get back into the workplace by providing them with clothes  that they can wear to interviews aswell as giving them back self confidence and self worth . .
