Founders, Sophie and Sarah, started Birdsong in 2015, inspired by the great skill and creativity in women’s community groups, but frustrated by their financial insecurity in the context of budget cuts and rising rents. With the fashion industry addicted to Photoshop and wholesale exploitation of millions of female garment workers worldwide, Birdsong is an ethical fashion brand championing women from worker to wearer. All Birdsong clothing is made by UK women facing barriers to employment. They are currently working with seven women’s groups in London - all comprising of women facing significant barriers to employment - many of them migrant women who have brought high quality making skills from their home countries. With Designer & Head of Production Susanna on board, the team is on a mission to create beautiful, sustainable clothes that empower the wearer, the worker, and the community that binds them together.
