“The show opened with a floor-sweeping saffron evening coat and a truly spellbinding headpiece made of turquoise feathers, one of several Philip Treacy–designed headpieces in the show. Some were feathered, while others mimicked leaves and flowers blooming around the models’ heads, and all of them came in a vibrant jewel tone to complement the richly colored clothes: mint with aquamarine; deep red with lime; neon pink with blush. – Vogue

When thinking about the hats for the collection, I envisioned this ethereal yet very powerful woman,” Treacy explained in the show notes. “She is almost like a celestial image, and the feathers are thought out to give a weightless effect that follows behind her and underlines the dichotomy between concealing and revealing.” – Vogue

The Hollywood Carnival and Cultural Festival 2017 was an amazing, world class experience. Los Angeles is truly a melting pot of “vibrant multicultural & diverse communities of people” from all over the world. Several countries presented; from Guatemala to Trinidad, Brazil, Mexico and so many more. It was great to see all the different cultural representations and carnival costumes in one parade. Here are some of the images we captured while at the parade.We know it takes months of planning and preparation to put these costumes together. Fortunately feather supplies are easy to come by at The Feather Place, located downtown Los Angeles. Wholesale is available to all carnival and cultural dance customers! We loved all of the amazing feathered costumes made with unique color combinations incorporating ostrich plumes, rooster coque tails, goose palettes, pheasant tails, and peacock feathers. Embellished with flashy sequence appliques, beads and trims to catch your eye, each reveler brings individual style and artistry within their groups theme.We’d like to give a shout out to our friends Extacy Mas, Jam Design Concepts, Bamboo Mas, Sistas wit Style, Caribbean Zone Productions, People of the Sun, The Mirage, Abraham Gonzales-Pollick from A Royal Piece and ALL of our carnival clients for counting on The Feather Place this year.

Hat's off to Hedda Hopper | The REAL Hedda Hopper

Hat’s off to Hedda Hopper !  Having recently watched FX Networks FEUD where scene after scene, Judy Davis’s character dons the most beauty feather hat, I was inspired to know more about the real Hedda Hopper and all of her hats!Hat's off to Hedda Hopper | Judy Davis as Hedda Hopper

“Judy Davis’ Hedda Hopper wears a succession of fantastic hats in “Feud,” which make for the most notable TV chapeaus of the year…

“Jack McConnell was a major milliner [of the era,] so we used a lot of his hats,” Eyrich says. “A bunch of our hats we got from a store here in Los Angeles called The Way We Wore. They have an amazing hat room that I had so much fun digging through.”

Murphy wanted hats with movement, so Eyrich added long, iridescent black feathers to one cap-like white hat. Another hat looks like an alien ship had landed on the wearer’s head.”Variety 

Hat's off to Hedda Hopper | Judy Davis as Hedda Hopper

Mesmerized by the plethora of feather hats Davis wore, we found these amazing images of the original gossip girl and Hollywood royalty ! Boy did she love to wear off the top feather hats! Ostrich Feather, Rooster Feather, She wore it and said it all!  Here are a few of our favorites! We hope you find some inspiration, especially with the Kentucky Derby around the corner!
