Ray Stitch Presents An Evening With Birdsong - We have carefully curated an event programme packed full with talks from inspiring designers, innovators and creators.


Join Sophie and Sarah, the founders of Birdsong for a talk about their fashion brand which doubles up as a fabulous all female social enterprise!


Birdsong, want to revolutionise the way you dress, they promise no sweatshop and no photoshop! You might have seen their collections featured in international publications such as The Guardian, Teen Vogue, i-D and Dazed & Confused.


This is a fashion brand who are doing things a bit differently by working solely with women’s groups and charities in order to produce our clothing. Many women’s groups produce beautiful clothing but face barriers when it comes to selling. It’s estimated that 60 million women worldwide, aged 18-35 work in the garment industry making less than a minimum wage. These women become hidden in the fashion supply chain, making it near impossible to track where your clothing comes from and who made it.


All women that Birdsong work with are paid a London living wage and have access to a range of holistic support.


This two hour event begins with a 30 minute reception with free drinks and snacks followed by an hour’s talk and then a 30 minute Q and A at the end.
