Fowl Play Exhibit The Feather Place has proudly collaborated with FIT, The Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC, to bring a wonderful feathered exhibit created by Visual Presentation students. Named “Fowl Play”, the exhibition explores ornithology (the study of birds) and how nature inspires fashion. Students researched different species of birds including their behavior, habitat and diet. They then visited our showroom in the heart of NYC’s Garment District to learn about feathers and their use in the fashion industry.

The students were instructed to transform the mannequin into a bird by considering the design and pose of the mannequin, and the variety of feathers provided by The Feather Place.  Each student emphasized one specific appearance or behavioral trait and was to include references of fashion designs inspired by their particular bird.  We absolutely love these student’s creations and hope you get inspired and are able to stop by!

“Fowl Play” exhibit at FIT, 27th street and 7th avenue NYC, until the end of April.
