Published: Nov. 1, 2021, 5 a.m.

What does being a game changer in fashion really look like? For the final episode of series three, we’re chatting to the founders of sustainable brand Birdsong, about their social enterprise model and how fashion can be a force for good.

As well as our conversation with Birdsong’s founders Susanna Wen and Sophie Slater, we also chat to their embroiderer, Mona, about what fashion social enterprises provide for local communities.
