About Us

Hi there! 

Scarlett Bird was established in 2011 by Melissa Aitchison in Adelaide, Australia. The business evolved from soy candles, to polymer clay jewellery in 2017, to custom slow fashion since 2018. 

The mantra for Scarlett Bird is Fun + Colourful, Pretty + Practical. Melissa designs 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. Sizing goes from 6 to 24, or larger with Preorder clothing based on your measurements.

Melissa works with a large array of Australian artists for all fabrics and t-shirt prints. She considers it important to be supporting Australian jobs wherever possible, all products are either printed or manufactured in Adelaide, South Australia. Limited Edition releases are run on a pre-order basis, to be as sustainable as possible with little waste. This gives you the ability to customise your pieces exactly how you like them.

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

Enjoy, and stay colourful ;)
