The team

The team

Our founders, Sophie and Sarah, started Birdsong in 2014, 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, an ethical fashion brand championing women from worker to wearer was born. 

 

Starting with just a couple of grants in the bank, and the experience of the Year Here programme for social entrepreneurs, Birdsong has to date channelled tens of thousands into women’s organisations in London, whether funding retirement home improvements in Enfield, or sewing classes in Bow.

 

With Designer & Head of Production Susanna on board, the team’s on a renewed mission to create beautiful, sustainable clothes that empower the wearer, the worker, and the community that binds us together.
