Sally LaPointe Frothy Feather Fashions from her S/S 2017 runway are among our favorite feather trends this year. Ostrich feathers and fringe always seems to be the most popular of feathers among fashion designers! Luxurious white, black and olive ostrich fringe, sheer fabrics and sparkling embellishments dominate this party-ready collection.
“As always, LaPointe delivered it all with a dose of sex appeal, from feather-embroidered bustiers to a body-hugging pink cashmere dress. On the more casual side, her black and white high-waisted denim styles, which laced all the way up the front of the leg, will be a surefire hit.”- wwd.com
Here’s an upclose look at Prada’s S/S 2017 Feather Details with almost every single piece having a delicate trail of Ostrich Feather trim or boas. Creamy Ivory, Mint, Blue Jean, Lemon, Dusty Rose and Cinnamon feather fringe adorn a patchwork of elegantly tailored fabrics. Miuccia Prada said backstage …
“I decided I wanted to…do something much more simple [than the recent past collections], and kind of trying to find a new way of elegance,” she said backstage. “Elegance sounds [like] an old-fashioned word, but also [stands] for something meaningful, cultivated….We need at this moment something personal, intimate, real, more sensitive somehow.” – wwd.com
DIY Pheasant Feather Trimmed Mirror Décor. In no time at all your space can go from drab to fab; revamping your mantle and giving it new life this fall. Decorating with pheasant feathers never looked so good!
Step 1: First trace the round mirrors with your Dressmakers White Chalk Pencil and cut the shape out with your scissors. You will want to make two of these round cut mats; one for each of the Pheasant Feather styles.
Step 2: Select your first set of feathers and organize them to your liking around the first piece of felt. Begin to glue them down one by one until finished. Continue and go on to the next feather mat.
Step 3: Stack the two feather mats on top of one another and glue them together in the center. Next, generously glue the round mirror to the center of the two feather mats.
Allow to dry overnight.
Step 4: Grab your Natural Twine or Cording of choice and braid enough to go round the circumference of mirror. Continue and glue the braided cord around the mirror. Once done, cut the excess cord and glue.
Step 5: Cut a small 2×1” piece of felt and center the large paperclip at the top, back of the mirror. Glue the felt over ½ of the paperclip leaving the other half exposed to be used as a hanger.
Allow to dry overnight before hanging up.
