Dress for the world you want

The Birdsong world, in a nutshell

OUR MISSION

Clothing for women who dress in protest

Wearing our collection of original 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. We know that women want more from their wardrobe but that the world of ethical, sustainable and local fashion can be a minefield. So we’ve ticked all the boxes for you.

OUR HOW

Ethically made in London, for and by remarkable women

We design clothes for remarkable women, but we’re also made by them.
We dream up designs in house, then work with expert women makers who face barriers to employment – from artists and printmakers to seamstresses and painters – and pay them London living wage to bring our creations to life.

OUR WHAT

Thoughtful clothes, art-inspired prints and natural fabrics

You won’t find anything like our collection on the high street. It’s about thoughtful clothes in bright colours, edgy silhouettes and original prints made from natural fabrics. Our block colour jumpsuits, hand printed trousers and super-soft knitwear are staples that will spark conversation for a lifetime (because, obviously, everything’s made to last).

OUR WHO

The flock is growing, together with you

Susanna Wen and Sophie Slater run the day to day work of Birdsong, with a lot of help from their amazing charity partners, makers and host of freelancers. Sophie's background was in activism, retail and women's organisations. Suze has been designing and advocating for sustainable fashion since her student days. Sophie founded Birdsong in 2014, and Suze joined in 2017. We also have some brilliant board members, including Mimma Viglezio, Aja Barber, Oliver Spark and Mursal Hedayat.
