The Feather Place Collars

Fall is here which means longer sleeves and warmer options, and what better way to stay stylish and warm than a feather collar? Our new line has hit our showrooms and website and we have to say that they make a perfect cool weather addition! Above left is our Chandelle Collar (available in multiple colors) and right is our Rooster Coque Collar that is sure to turn heads!

Another great way to add feathered flair to your autumn wardrobe is a fun DIY idea that we found on yesstyle.com. The steps are simple to create a romantic collar, all you need are scissors, needle & thread, ribbon, and ostrich feather fringe! We have a variety of colors and styles of fringe that you can see here. Check out the final product and detailed steps below:

Ostrich Feather Collar

Use about 17 inches of ostrich feather fringe or measure your neck with a button-down on for best fit.

Then simply singe ends of satin ribbon with a lighter to keep them from fraying and stitch on either end of your feather fringe with needle and thread.

For the past few years at the Feather Place NYC we’ve had the pleasure of working with one of our favorite designers ‘The Blonds’ to help them bring their fierce feather creations to life and this year was no different. The Blondes are well known here in NY for their Fun, Funky and sometimes Outrageous designs and costumes worn by celebrities such as Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Beyonce!  For their Spring 2014 collection they worked mostly with our Ostrich Feathers mixed with Sequins,  Vinyl , Jewels and even Tinsel!
