Fashion is an important ally for change. At Birdsong, Sophie and Sarah founded Birdsong to create clothing for women who dress in protest. Wearing their wardrobe staples is a protest in itself– against the fast nature of the fashion industry, against the obsessive pursuit of trends and against the systematic abuse of women in the production line. Birdsong designs clothes for remarkable women, but they are also made by them. They work with expert women makers who face barriers to employment, from artists and printmakers to seamstresses and painters, and pay them London living wages to bring their designs to life.
