  1. Dear Rachel,

    I am writing to you on behalf of the team for the Collingwood College Charity Fashion Show. As the largest college at Durham University, Collingwood college fashion show is one of the biggest events in the university calendar with hundreds of students attending and promotional material being broadcast across the whole university, raising a great opportunity for you to promote your store, The Yesterday Society. As a result of the tragic loss of one of Collingwood’s students in 2012, all proceeds of this years fashion show will be going to Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY); a charity that is aiming to reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac arrest from the unbelievable 12 that die every week in the UK, through the development of heart screening and medical research. �
    We are contacting you as we would love to represent The Yesterday Society as part of our show and are hoping that you would be interested in lending us some items of clothing that you can spare around the date of the 10th February 2017. We think your brand image fits perfectly with the fun and vibrant ethos of our fashion show and that it would be a great occasion to showcase your clothes to Durham University Students. Our theme this year is ‘Decades of Decadence’ in which we are hoping to celebrate fashion through the decades on each separate walk, your brand appeals very much to us in terms of our 70s and 90s style walks.

    We would make it our responsibility to care for the clothes and accessories and keep them in the best condition. We have had our college office draw up a contract signed by every model to incorporate this promise. We would also be more than happy for your team to personally select the items that you feel best represents your brand and the image you would wish to promote at our event.

    Additionally or alternatively, we’d also be absolutely delighted if you could spare any small products or discount cards that could feature in our auction or be used in goodie bags. I’d also like to take the opportunity to point out that as well as supporting two great causes you would be seizing a great advertising opportunity with over 250 students attending and promotional material broadcast across the whole of the university.

    We would love if you would check out our Social Media pages to see the current progress of the event!

  2. Hi there,

    We’ve come across several original gentleman’s coats and suits when clearing my grandfather’s house and they’re in very good condition and mostly UK made. I was wondering if you’d be interested in making us an offer for them. If you’d like to see some photos, I’d be happy to send them via email or whatsapp. The collection includes: full length wool smoking jacket, navy coat with original buttons, army coat with original buttons, herringbone and houndstooth tweed coats etc. And 4-5 suits (pinstriped and tweed etc.)

    Please just let me know if you have any questions or if you’d like to arrange to see them.

    Best wishes

    I have a selection of Monsoon, Gucci, Reiss, Karen Millen clothing ranging from dresses, skirts and tops and was wondering whether you would be able to have a look at them for me. These are rarely worn and would be good for someone different.

    What happens next?

  4. Hi I’ve been asked by my mother in law to try and sell her fur coats. They are genuine and she got them 37 years ago. I realise the connotations that selling real fur can bring about but I just wanted some advice re: would anyone buy real fur now? Whereabouts would I go about trying to do this? Are there specialist retailers that would do this?
    Many thanks

    1. Hi Dianne,

      We do not sell fur however you could try traders at Tynemouth Market or the vintage shop in Durham. Other than that eBay. Thanks Rach

  5. Hi, could you send me your email address re the clothes I emailed you about in feb. I have some photos if your still interested.

  6. I have some vintage clothes 1950’s and others. Scarves, gloves shoes and bags. Would you be interested in them?

  7. Dear Rachel,

    I am writing to you regarding a fashion sponsorship opportunity with Trevelyan Charity Fashion Show, a non-profit charity fashion show run by members of Trevelyan College, Durham University. This year we are working with an amazing local charity called “If U Care, Share” which works on raising awareness of young people’s mental health and preventing suicide, the founders of which even received a Diana Award in 2011. Our show this year is entitled ‘Express Yourself’ and will revolve around how clothes and music can help people express themselves and reach out to others.

    The Trevelyan Charity Fashion Show is an annual event which fundraises for various charities and last year over 200 people attended the fashion show, even more at our afterparty and this year we are aiming even bigger! Last year the show raised over £4,500 for the charity ‘Say it Loud’ who raise awareness for the huge adversity that LGBTQ+ refugees and asylum seekers face when coming to the UK. We also host ‘Meet the Models’ events and other charity events within the college, allowing us to reach the 800 members of Trevelyan College and more!

    We are requesting your help with sponsorship or donation for this year’s show. Donations such as clothing or gift cards would help our Fashion Executive Team to secure the materials needed for our event. As part of the TCFS Marketing Package, we offer prolonged social media promotion: we will advertise your business prior and after the event through scheduled Facebook and Instagram posts. TCFS would borrow clothing from your retail outlets for a period beginning approximately 3 weeks prior to the show (Sunday 1st March 2020).

    If you have any further questions about partnering with TCFS, or in ways in which you can sponsor or donate, please do not hesitate to contact me at tcfs1718@gmail.com. We look forward to hearing back from you very soon. We hope to work with you and raise as much awareness and money as possible to help support the emotional and mental wellbeing of young people and those affected by suicide.
