About this project

Birthday Girl (BG)

noun  |[burth-dey] [gurl]|

1. A woman who celebrates life everyday like it's her birthday.

2. The little girl that lives inside each and every woman who always believes in the magic of birthdays.

Hello Kickstarters!

Thanks so much for visiting my project! I know there are so many great products out there so I truly appreciate you stopping by to check mine out.

I believe with all my heart that every girl should celebrate every day like it's her birthday! After I co-wrote "Love Lockdown" for Kanye West and "I Can See In Color" for Mary J Blige, I was blessed with the opportunity to be the first female artist on her Matriarch Records label. I knew that the first track I wanted to record was "Birthday Girl"!

For me, BIRTHDAY GIRL clothing is a reminder of the importance of celebrating yourself and all you have every day. When we were on the “Dance Again” tour with Jennifer Lopez and Enrique Iglesias, as well as the “Liberation” tour with Mary J. Blige and D’Angelo, people kept asking me about the Birthday Girl shirts that my dancers and I were wearing. Eventually we started selling them at shows and we pretty much sold out of them. That’s when I really knew that people connected with the song and the message -- BIRTHDAY GIRL was born!

Two T-Shirts for Less Than $50!! Pre-Order yours Now!

Ask any girl what her favorite day of the year is, and she's almost guaranteed to say her birthday-- of course! Every time I put on my favorite BIRTHDAY GIRL shirt, it reminds me of every wish I've ever made, as I blew out every candle, on every cake, at every birthday party I ever had.  Whether you want to slip into your favorite BIRTHDAY GIRL shirt and read a book or pair it with a show stopping outfit while you tear up the town with your girlfriends, I hope that it will mean as much to you as it does to me.

Love,

Starshell, Lady, and the whole Birthday Girl Team

We Need Your Support

We've finalized the prototypes, have established relationships with our manufacturers and distributors ... we just need your help in reaching our goal of $15,000 to get the first line going. All Kickstarter funding will go towards covering the production and launch of our first line of t-shirts. Please support us at whatever level you're comfortable with. In return, you can get your BIRTHDAY GIRL shirts along with some pretty fabulous rewards. 

$15,000 

At $15,000 we will be able to launch our very first line of high quality t-shirts.  The designs will be silk screen printed special with soft inks on 100% super soft ring-spun cotton t-shirts. This process creates a strong print with bright colors while maintaining the softness of the t-shirt. The following sizes will be available: S, M, L, XL, and XXL.

$50,000

If with your love, help and support, we make it past $50,000 we will also be able to launch our line of sassy boy shorts.  These high side-slit varsity shorts are fun to Mix and Match with any BIRTHDAY GIRL top.

#TeamZodiac Shorts:

If we raise over $50,000, shorts will be available in 12 Zodiac signs in the colors shown, as well as white, blue and red. (Due to lighting, actual product colors may vary slightly.)

Risks and challenges

Our first challenge will be spreading the word on our project to as many people as possible and trying to convince Kickstarters to support us. There are so many clothing lines out there, so we really need to fully represent how we differentiate ourselves.

Once funding is achieved, our challenge will be to produce large quantities of the products. Since we are working with overseas manufacturers, one of our top challenges will be to receive our products on time and exactly the way we designed it.
