Say hello to your new wardrobe heroes.

It’s no secret that the fashion industry has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. With retail stores shut for the foreseeable future, which has contributed to a decrease in sales, many brands across Canada are struggling to survive – including womenswear brand Judith & Charles. Today, the brand posted an impassioned plea on its Instagram account for support from its loyal base of clients across the country. The plea comes after the brand was told by its bank that it was not eligible to receive emergency government funding given the uncertain future of retail. If the loan is in fact denied, “we will have to close our doors,” the brand shared.

It continued, “Virtually no other industry faces seasonality and deadlines like the fashion industry, and we are running out of time. For this reason we are reaching out to you to support us by making a purchase if you have the means in these difficult times. If our case is not appealed, the sale of 1,500 suits, or the equivalent, will provide us with the cashflow to continue producing and keep our doors open. Your continued loyalty and patronage, means the world to us.”

The 30-year old Montreal-based brand is a regular go-to for the likes of Canadian powerhouse women including Sophie Grégoire Trudeau and Tessa Virtue, as well as Meghan Markle. It is also nominated in the Womenswear Designer of the Year category at this year’s CAFA Awards. Specializing in fit and quality, the brand creates pieces that can be worn time and time again. Here, our team picks five of their favourite pieces that you can buy now and treasure forever:

Murakami Pants, $192.50

“A great pair of black pants is hard to come by and Judith and Charles is a reliable source for clean tailored pieces. Black trousers may seem simple, or dare I say boring, but the front slit on the Murakami pant adds just enough spunk to this wardrobe staple. Let this simple opening elongate your leg and show off your statement shoe collection.” –  Eliza Grossman, Fashion Editor

“There’s no such thing as having too many white shirts. Especially ones that can be worn untucked. And I love the open lace detail on these sleeves. It takes this basic to the next level.” – Bernadette Morra, Editor in Chief

“I think a fun floral-print blouse should be considered a wardrobe staple! Wear it with jeans, wear it with a suit, or wear it under a printed jumpsuit if you really want to mix things up. And whether you pile on the jewellery or keep things simple with just one elegant accessory, it will still be the star attraction of any ensemble.” – Odessa Paloma Parker, Fashion News Director

“If you’re looking for a piece that’s sure to get you endless compliments each time you wear it, this is it. The subtle knot and keyhole detail at the neck adds a little excitement to this classic, wear-everywhere midi that will fast become your wardrobe’s MVP.” – Maddison Glendinning, Digital Director
