A YEAR IN FEATHERS
From Betsey Johnson’s flirty feathered runway looks to the loss of comedian Joan Rivers and fashion icon Oscar De La Renta, 2014 sure did have it’s noteworthy feathered fashion moments. Looking back at 2014, Here are some of the top trending feathered moments.
BROOKLYN MUSEUM RETROSPECTIVE – Jean Paul Gaultier Exhibits His Love for Feathers at the Brooklyn Museum.
NY FASHION WEEK – This Marchesa 2014 collection is for the romantic woman, featuring lightly feathered looks fit for queens.
MARDI GRAS 2014 – Who let the dogs out…!? Even mans best friend reveled at the 2014 Barkus Mardi Gras parade! Check out how cute they look in their feathered mask and parade float! FYI : Mardi Gras 2015 comes early next year on Tuesday, February 17th… Plan for 2015 fat Tuesday celebration costumes in advance and SHOP at The Feather Place for all of your feathered needs!
NYC FIT “Fowl Play” – 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. All of the feathers used in this exhibit were supplied by The Feather Place and can all be purchased right here at Featherplace.com.
CARNIVAL SAN FRANCISCO 2014 – Hundreds of thousands of residents, tourist and revelers hit the streets of San Francisco Memorial Day weekend to help celebrate it’s 36th anniversary! What we love the most about this event is the variety of cultures represented in the parades contingent! Included are feathered representatives from Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Mexico, Colombia, Trinidad, Cuba and islands throughout the Caribbean !
BURNING MAN 2014 – Feathers make a come back at Burning Man! The Burning Man Official Blog announces that “…if you want to wear feathers, that’s fine … but make sure they’re attached in ways that won’t fail, and if you can’t then don’t wear them, because it’s on YOU if they become MOOP. (And that goes for anything you bring to Black Rock City.)”
FASHION WEEK NYC – Betsey Johnson’s SS15 feathered collection was front and center and in true Betsey Johnson form; an Over the top, ultra girly “Love and Marriage” themed extravaganza!
SAYING GOODBYE TO JOAN RIVERS – We are certainly going to miss Joan Rivers ruffling everyone’s feathers on the red carpet and in her E Entertainment TV series “Fashion Police“!
A FEATHERED FAREWELL TO OSCAR DE LA RENTA – The fashion industry lost one of it’s greatest fashion icons this October. “I don’t really know how to do casual clothes.”- Oscar de la Renta
BIRDS OF PARADISE EXHIBITION – Birds of Paradise – Plumes and Feathers in Fashion ; The exhibition runs from October 25 until 19 April 2015. We wish we could travel across the pond to see this spectacular show.
VICTORIA’S SECRET 2014 FASHION SHOW – Last but not least the Victoria’s Secret 2014 Fashion Show in London. Karlie Kloss and her handcrafted 18kt gold gilded feather angel wings stole the show! The Feather Place is lucky to have an inside scoop on the creation of these spectacular feather wings every year when we help handcraft these towering beauties!
As we look back upon the past year, we would like to acknowledge those who have helped us shape our business. Thanks for a great year, and we wish you all the best as you embark on 2015.
HAPPY NEW YEAR – From your friends @THEFEATHERGIRL
