Giambattista Valli Haute Couture Spring 2017

Our favorite Giambattista Valli Haute Couture Spring 2017 feathered looks! Of course we love the monochromatic grey Ostrich Feather Fringe details that were combined with touches of bright chartreuse throughout! Even more impressive is the use of an almost lost technique where you “curl” the feather Ostrich trim like in the images seen below! Makes us want to use one of our Silver or Twilight Two Ply Ostrich Boas to try to recreate the look! If you want to try this technique out yourself, make sure to check out our Tip and Techniques page for information on this technique and more!

Spring 2013 Couture Shows Take Flight Down the Runways!

by The Feather Place NYC on February 4, 2013




Romance, fantasy, exoticism…. The Spring 2013 Couture shows had it all! Feathers came in all shapes and sizes, from fluffy dress trains to feather flowers to backpack adornments, and we loved every single look! Some of 2013’s hottest colors can be seen on the runway, such as pastels at Chanel, juicy light pinks at Giambattista Valli, and earthy greens at Maison Martin Margiela.

The Chanel collection above and below was shown in a fantasy forest, and their use of ostrich and chandelle feathers  gave the looks just the right amount of whimsy.


COUTURE1The two looks below are by Giambattista Valli and we love the intricate embroidery techniques they used to apply these rooster hackle and goose feathers. Rooster hackle was made into pretty pink flowers of all sizes, while the pink goose gave the second dress a more avant garde look.


COUTURE3Jean Paul Gaultier showed many inspirations from the East, and we loved this exotic feel. The designer used Ostrich Plumes on the back of this final look.

COUTURE5Below left is another avant garde yet beautiful look by the controversial Maison Martin Margiela. The designer used feather pointers to create an abstract top, with a tuft of ostrich feathers on the side which makes this piece look like a bird in flight! Below right is an ethereal Valentino gown fit for a bride, complete with feather flower embroidery.
