For our first post, we thought it fitting to do a bit of a re-cap of 2014 as we head into the new year. And boy oh boy what a year it has been for Blackbird! This time last year we had just wrapped up an epic Kickstarter campaign, raising over $40,000 to help this bird take flight. Soon thereafter we participated in Lingerie Fashion Week in New York, where we were featured in the “Ones to Watch” exhibition for emerging designers, as well as a runway show on closing night. In the spring and summer we produced our debut MAVEN collection, shipped out over 250 Kickstarter rewards, and launched our online boutique. Now we’ve just wrapped up our first holiday season and are looking forward to some exciting plans for Valentine’s Day! (more on that later :). We are eager to do even bigger things in 2015, and look forward to sharing this journey with you.
We’ll leave you with that for now, but look forward to posting here again soon. We wish you a happy and fulfilling new year, filled with love, laughter, and gorgeous underthings!
