Welcome to Birdsong
Hey, we’re Birdsong. We’re a fashion brand for people who expect more from their wardrobes. We work on a promise of “no sweatshops & no photoshop”.
We want to revolutionise the way you dress. All our clothes are made by women’s groups with rare skills. We pair their expertise with our designs, creating wearable pieces with a mind to the future. From migrant seamstresses to knitting grannies, we connect women from worker to wearer.
We show the reality of what women look like with our unedited models, who are often friends or supporters. We think that your body suits you, so dress it in Birdsong.
Why we do what we do
Women’s services are great. Women’s charities pick up all the pieces when sh*t hits the fan. They also make cool stuff, but often don’t know how to sell it. They’re super broke, but have loads of potential.
Fashion: it’s our own worst enemy, but our best mate. Loads of women workers are exploited for the sake of covering our bums in fabric. Beautiful, inspiring fabric. But still, not cool when you think about it.
We’re our own customers. We wanted a fun way to do fashion that didn’t make us feel sad about our bodies, or any body for that matter.
You might have seen us around
“The crux of Birdsong is, that they’re selling lovely things, made in partnership with lovely women’s organisations and charities and you feel lovely as a result.
You can delve deeper and look at the incredible women’s knitting groups or impoverished migrant women’s circles that create these things.
Or you can stop and admire aesthetics alone and just count on the fact that by shopping at Birdsong, something good is coming out of that credit/debit card swipe.”
