Say Hello to Yellow!

Our days are getting brighter, our moods are lifting and coincidentally we are seeing that YELLOW is going to be huge for Spring!

Yellow is showing up in a multitude of shades, from canary to goldenrod and we are feeling the impact of this powerful color. The acid yellow colors from last fall have moved to a canary yellow and the strong mustards are moving to goldenrod and marigold.

Interior and furniture companies are using them for furniture and accessories, and Crate & Barrel has named Yellow the “it” color for Spring. Also, Pantone has predicted it’s yellow called Solar Power as a top color for Spring.

 

Check out our new color Marigold (Pantone 14-0951), available in many different sizes of Ostrich Feathers. You can’t go wrong with our tried and true Yellow or Gold colors available in Turkey, Goose, Rooster, Pheasant and Ostrich feathers!

Ostrich Feathers in Bridal Decor and Accessories

Fancy and Luxurious, Ostrich plumes are the ultimate in feather trimmings! You can change the entire look of anything with just one plume. From adorning flapper headbands or embellishing your bridal bouquet and accessories, the possibilities are endless. Very popular in the special event industry, large ostrich plumes are a staple item for making table centerpieces, opulent feather palm trees and adding romantic details to bridal decor. They are also spectacular when making showgirl headdresses, costumes and large feather fans. Available  by the dozen or by the pound in a variety of styles  (drabs, femina, spads, nandus and floss) and colors… And like our Feather Girls in New York City say’s nude colors like blush and ivory are in! You can use our handmade  Ostrich Fringe with bias tape sewn across the top which makes it easy to work with… our  1 ply ostrich fringe comes in some great new shades like Beige, Champagne, Oatmeal and Sand and our 2 ply ostrich boas come in Cinnamon, Ivory, Natural and many more colors.

Nude colors are romantic, pretty, and are being used just about everywhere these days! Colors such as blush and ivory are on the runways for spring, and will be evolving into fall. Not only do these great basic hues look great for everyday looks, but they play a major role in the bridal and accessory industry. The Golden Globes also showcased gorgeous actresses in this trend because, let’s face it, nudes can look sexy and sweet on everyone!

These beauties glow in pale pinks and off-whites.

Actresses stunned in flesh tones and champagne colors.

Ivory and Blush were seen all over the runways for S/S 2012.

Nude accessories can really make a statement!

A great way to add feathered nude tones to your look is with an ostrich boa or ostrich fringe. Our 1 ply ostrich fringe comes in some great new nudes like Beige, Champagne Oatmeal and Sand. Our 2 ply ostrich boas come in Cinnamon, Ivory, Natural and many more colors.

Pretty in Pastels for S/S 2012!

The weather this time of year on the East Coast is not always fun… or predictable. After braving the cold yesterday to attend Indigo, a Premiere Vision Preview show, we definitely know one thing for sure- Pastels are in for Spring!!!

The new pastels are not your Easter Sunday types. These colors have a punch and are mixed with neons, burnt brights, and retro prints to make them feel fresh and fun. Sea foam green, a pale yellow-based white, and a sweet cool pink are major players this upcoming season.

We think this spread in Vogue Nippon for February 2012 below explains this color trend best! Feast your eyes on Spring/Summer 2012!
