Birdsong Studios AW 2017
The first mainline collection from Birdsong Studios, created by exceptional women spanning the full spectrum of London. Designed in house by Susanna Wen, and hand cut, sewn, and finished by migrant women in Limehouse, Poplar and Shoreditch. Woollen sweaters and scarves were hand knitted in practised hands by older women in Enfield and Kingston.
This collection is dedicated to all the women – workers, wearers and beyond – who came together to create it. To all the women of our past, and the women whose futures we work towards.
