About Us

Hi there! 

Scarlett Bird was established in 2011 by Melissa Aitchison (me!) in Adelaide, Australia. My business has now evolved from soy candles, to polymer clay jewellery in 2017, to custom slow fashion since 2018. 

My mantra for my brand is Fun + Colourful, Pretty + Practical. I design clothes mainly for day wear, that have the ability to be dressed up while still being comfortable, and importantly looking fabulous! They can be worn anywhere, from school pickups to work, a brunch date to a night out, and by anyone. I go up to size 24, or larger with Custom clothing based on your measurements.

I work with a large array of Australian artists for all my fabrics and t-shirt prints. It's important to me that my brand is supporting Australian jobs wherever possible, all products are either printed or manufactured here in Adelaide. I run my Custom production on a pre-order basis, so I can be as sustainable as possible with little waste. Then you get to customise your pieces exactly how you like them.

However, if you just want something quick and easy, I offer a Ready to Wear range, which is also manufactured here in Adelaide in small batches. Keeping them just as unique and exclusive as my Custom pieces, but convenient for you!

Enjoy, and stay colourful ;)
