This dreary NYC weather is a reminder that the Holidays are near! One of the our favorite things to see around this time of year, besides for the Rockerfeller Center Christmas Tree of course, are the retail store’s holiday windows!!! We are especially impressed by Bergdorf Goodman’s windows, which we are excited to say included tons of feathers that The Feather Place NYC supplied!
The store’s 5 holiday windows are fantastical and draw inspiration from the Art Deco style and our feathers fit in just perfectly! The windows represent 5 Acts which can be traced back to famous entertainers, such as Marilyn Monroe and Sally Rand. You can find all these feathers and more at featherplace.com!
Don’t forget to check out the windows for yourself at Bergdorf Goodman on 58th street and 5th Avenue in Manhattan. Watch the video below to see how the windows came together with inside look at the design team.
Turkey enthusiast Barbara Orr Ehrhart loved feathers probably just as much as we do here at The Feather Place! She loved them so much so that she had a “Turkey Themed” wedding! Here’s a feathered blast from the past and just in time for Thanksgiving!
“If you thought most bridesmaids’ dresses were hideous, imagine having to wear one made of turkey feathers. For the 1948 wedding party of one Barbara Orr Ehrhart, Oregonian and turkey enthusiast extraordinaire, this unlikely scenario was, in fact, all-too-real. As the Feb. 9, 1948, issue of LIFE magazine made plain, in an engaging article titled “LIFE Goes to a Turkey Feather Wedding,” turkey was the theme of the evening at Ehrhart’s nuptials — not merely on the menu, but turkey on the attendants and on the happy bride herself… Half a century before Lady Gaga hit the red carpet in her infamous meat dress, Ehrhart displayed her feathered creations at local poultry shows.”
It’s that time of year again (already??) and we are rejoicing because we get to celebrate this Thanksgiving with both our loved ones and feathers!! There are so many ways to decorate with feathers that we just wanted to share some of our favorite inspirational images!
Victoria’s Secret annual fashion show was this week here in NYC and we can’t wait to show you the spectacular feather creations from this year’s event! The VS Angels looked stunning (just check out the gorgeous Miranda Kerr above) and we think that Victoria’s Secret really outdid themselves this year!!!
Towering creations made of ostrich plumes, ostrich spads, rooster coque, goose feathers and so much more graced the runway while performers like Rihanna and Justin Bieber entertained the audience. Check out our photo gallery of the hottest feather looks in town and video highlights below!
