Hello there! Let us formally introduce ourselves...

We have been open for two months now and want to tell you a little bit more about if you're the curious type, pull up a chair and let's chat!

The Store
Blackbird Clothes and Curios brings you interesting Men's and Women's clothes from a fashionably twisted point of view that, at the same time, reflect that special "only in Austin" feel of the North Loop area. We love it here!

At our store, you will find a curios collection that showcases art, ephemera, trinkets, and found objects that have pinches of punk, cabaret, steampunk, gothic romance, or are just downright weird.

Our clothes are as close to "one-of-a-kind" at an "artist/student/not yet discovered my royal lineage" price as is possible for us to bring you. We work with designers and manufacturers that allow us to order in very small amounts which ensures our customers a personal statement with their choices. You don't have to worry about seeing your same outfit or piece of jewelry walking down the street or at the same show.

The Specialist: Juliana Azar
Juliana is a fashion designer, artist, and instructor in the Fashion/Retail Management program at the Art Institute of Austin. With the exception of a brief stint in NYC to "find herself," Juliana is a born and bred Austin native who grew up in the NOLO hood! She has degrees in Fine Arts from both UT and ACC and was awarded a full scholarship to the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles to study fashion design. She can answer any question you may have about textiles or what color, fit, and silhouette is right for you.

The Fun Maker: Stacey Breakall
Stacey is a wildly disciplined student in the art of creating fun scenarios. Some of her creations include Flea Market Film Festival, Kitty Kitty Bang Bang, and the Texas Burlesque Festival. For Blackbird, she brings to the table a keen knack for getting things done and a love of seedy glamour and objects of the odd. She has curated a delicious selection of gifts and trinkets, from the strangely cute to the downright curious and wants to share them with you.

Well, that's about you? Drop by sometime and introduce yourself.
