Hello all :)
I'm back with another Finding Fashion post. This time I looked at new start up brand, Urban Bird Clothing and, because it's Friday and we want to keep the good vibes flowing, we're offering you 15% off for the next 2 weeks! Feed the need to shop, my lovelies.
Purchases can be made through Etsy, Depop and the website, urbanbirdclothing.co.uk, which will be up and running this Wednesday. Don't forget to give the brand a follow on Facebook and Intagram (an account I'm crazy in LOVE with) to keep up with new collections and competitions.
So here's what you need to know about Urban Bird Clothing and the girl who started it all off...
Name: Molly Kempster
Brand name: Urban Bird Clothing
When did you start creating clothes and why?
"I made my first kimono in April 2014. I'd never really made clothes before but have always been artsy, I love making things and always have. As for why, I absolutely love kimonos and was fed up of spending £50-£60 in Topshop every time I saw a nice one. So I thought, 'How hard can it be?' And here we are!"
You've recently started making jewellery too. What sparked that?
"When I first decided to make this into a brand, I always knew I wanted it to be more than just kimonos. So I expanded, started making dresses, tops, two pieces, bralets, skirts... I even have plans for things like lingerie and bags. I want Urban Bird to be a well rounded company, I want a customer to be able to go online and buy a whole outfit that matches perfectly in style without hunting around. So jewellery is the start of that!"
What inspires your designs?
"I've always been a lover of the hippy/bohemian style. I love bold prints, bright colours, intricate embroidery and flowy fabric. Basically anything with that free spirit vibe. I also love everything about 90's grunge; the music, the people, the style. The whole scene! So when winter comes we may see more of that style creeping in.

"I absolutely love what I'm doing and thank everyone for your support! I'm at Uni studying photography, and start second year at the end of the month, so Urban Bird Clothing may be a little quieter than normal for a while. We'll... be releasing winter stuff [and] designing a load of stuff ready for SS15! Excited to show you what we have planned!"
It was a pleasure getting to know Molly and her brand better and I can't wait to see what she has in store for this AW14 season.
Now head off to Etsy or Depop and quote the 'BROKEBB' code for 15% off. Alternatively, you could check out her Instagram and send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org about a product from there (discount is still valid through this too).
