The Joan Rivers’s Private Collection will be auctioned off at Christie’s today June 22, and we are taking a look at our favorite over the top items we wish we could bid on! Among the treasure trove of gilded English and French furnishings we find these flirty gems; Our favorite feather detailed gown and coats.
Rivers herself once described the decor of the 5,100-square-foot triplex as “Louis XIV meets Fred and Ginger.”

We love when our friends share creative ways to use our feathers like this “To the Sea” Seagull Costume tutorial! Here our friend Sasha Goodnow used white Turkey Quills and Goose Nagoire feathers to create a custom feather cape for the GreenHouse Theater Project ! We think that it turned out fantastic! Make sure to check out the “To the Sea” multi-media play and scroll through Sasha’s tutorial below.
2016 Carnaval SF “¡Viva La Madre Tierra!” wrapped up last weekend and here are our favorite images of feather costumes from the 38th annual event!
“¡Viva La Madre Tierra!”, celebrates Mother Earth’s prevalence in many cultures worldwide as the manifestation of the natural world. She is the life giver and the sustainer of life; from her womb she gave origin to all the plants, animals, and people. – www.carnavalsanfrancisco.org
We were also super excited to see that our friend from Sistas wit Style won for Queen of the carnival!!!! Here is what winner Kianna Rachal had to say about her win…
“…It’s fulfilling to see all the hard work put into Carnaval. It’s so exciting to see Sistas-Wit-Style come down the road with so much energy and excitement with smiles across our masqueraders faces — it brings so much joy… To prepare for Carnaval, Sistas-Wit-Style has been teaching free Caribbean dance classes to our Masqueraders every Saturday which are optional, our mas camp is open day and night for costume production… I would love to send special thanks to our designers at Sistas-Wit-Style; Annabelle Goodridge, Stephanie Dixon, Tiara Welch, Azer Moore. Our many volunteers and masqueraders as well because without them there would be no Sistas-Wit-Style…” – THE OFFICIAL NEWSLETTER OF CARNAVAL SAN FRANCISCO –– DIGITAL EDITION
