We’re popping up

In incredibly exciting news, we’re popping up IRL for the first time. During the run up to Christmas, we’re hosting a pop-up shop in Old Street, 46 Charlotte Road, from the 13th to 19th December. We have 1000 sqft of space to share with brands with a similiar ethos including THINX, Clio Peppiatt, Katie Jones, Auria, Polyester, Riposte & more.

 

In addition to stocking the Birdsong AW16 collection, we’ll be featuring gifts for all the best women in your life, as well as somethings for the boys and everyone in between. Whether you’re after a magazine, new season partywear, or makers of beautiful stationery, there’s something in our pop-up for you. Invite your pals here.

The class will be taught by professional make-up artist Grace Vee (clients include Dazed, Hunger and i-D) and will teach the women how to colour-correct a five o’clock shadow and how to use contour and highlight to create a more feminine face shape.
