Idea

Birdsong is an emerging fashion brand for people who expect more from their wardrobe.

Birdsong aims to revolutionise the way we shop by using the untapped skill of women’s organisations as our supply chain - from elderly knitters to migrant seamstresses. Until now, they've faced significant barriers to selling online. With our support they are able to reach a fast growing ethical market.

We’ve been breaking ground with our no sweatshops, no photoshop policy since day one. Our founders are our target market; millennials who want to look and feel great, but not at any cost.

We offer a refreshing alternative on the cyber high-street. Our unedited, street-cast models put us at the forefront of a shift in marketing. Customers buy from us for great designs, but also for how they’re sold and the story behind them. We have seen an average monthly growth of 16% for the last 12 months.
