NYC is heating up and here at The Feather Place we are always looking for ways to incorporate feathers into our evolving seasonal style! We recently discovered designer Tess Johnson, who graduated from NYC’s Parson’s The New School of Design, and her stunning collection that features – you guessed it – feathers!!! She used some of the most unique feathers that we carry, Venery Pheasant Tails, in a variety of innovative ways. Check out her remarkable dresses, cuffs and jacket that feature these wonderful feathers. Don’t miss her sky high heels with Bleached and Dyed Rooster Coque Tails, or her Goose Biot Cuffs!

A congratulatory shout out goes to our friend and honorary feathergirl Holly Hmielewski , who recently “took two first-place awards and won the Musselman Fashion Design Award at the Fashion Group International of Dallas Career Day Awards…” one of which “comes with a $10‚000 prize and a chance to design a collection under the mentorship of Forty-Five Ten owner Brian Bolke.-www.stephens.edu
It was soon after this first photoshoot that she was inspired to create this beautiful dress using Rooster Saddle Feathers in Natural.
My inspiration was a mermaid and phoenix because I wanted to created a new mythological creature by ‘morphing’ them together. The dress is made out of faux leather and rooster feathers… I took the photos at the Devils icebox cave in Columbia. I was inspired to create this dress after I modeled for you the first time.- Holly Marie
Oh and wait…. a Special Shout Out goes out to our Honorary Feather Girl & Cousin Maria Luisa, who appears in this music video sitting to the right of PitBull during the opening Poolside scene! Kudos Maria Luisa!!!!
It seems like the whole city is buzzing with talk about the Met Gala event that opened the museum’s latest exhibit, “Punk: Chaos to Couture”! We love that feathers can be both rock n’ roll fierce and romantic, so we weren’t surprised to see some killer looks with feathers on the red carpet! Check out our round-up of stellar feathered looks, starting with the one and only Sarah Jessica Parker above who made a huge statement in a Burnt Peacock Flue headdress by Philip Treacy. Below is the talented Anne Hathaway in a vintage Valentino dress with Ostrich Feather cuffs accompanied by the designer.
Below left is actress Kirsten Dunst wearing a dress with ombre Ostrich Feathers by Louis Vuitton that we covered when it was first going down the runway because it is just so stunning! On the right is the Franca Sozzani, editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia, in a luxurious dress with peek-a-boo Rooster Coque Feather detailing.
Model Carolyn Murphy (below left) channeled some fierceness in this Nina Ricci dress embellished with Ostrich Feathers. New York Knick Amar’e Stoudemire and his wife Alexis Welch showed us their baby bump in a gorgeous ostrich feathered Giambattista Valli dress.
Like the looks above? You too can add some feathers to your look by using our Burnt Peacock Flue, just like Sarah Jessica Parker, for a headdress or any creative idea you can come up with! An Ostrich Boa is a great way to add feathered cuffs to any outfit, or use our Ostrich Fringe as an embellishment. Rooster Coque Feathers add a luxurious touch to any outfit, try ours by the yard or on a fringe! Don’t forget to check out our Pinterest for tons of creative ideas and inspiration!
