Every once in awhile we get to help on uber creative events like the Hauntingly Beautiful Feather Wedding Decor made for Michael Scola and Jordan Rodarte’s “American Horror Story” Themed Wedding!

Yes, that’s right we said… an “American Horror Story” Themed Wedding– and every single “AHS” inspired decor detail from the art deco venue, ostrich feather centerpieces to actor Naomi Grossman (from both Asylum & Freak Show) as the ring bearer, was on point!

“After Michael proposed to me and we started planning, we knew almost immediately we wanted a Halloween wedding,” Jordan said. “The ‘AHS’ thing came in once we chose our gorgeous Art Deco venue ― only to find out it was where they were filming ‘AHS: Hotel!’ That’s when we really went for it.”

Michael and Jordan who tied the knot last week on Oct. 29 at the historic Oviatt Penthouse in Downtown L.A  came to The Feather Place Los Angeles months in advance and with our help were able to make their wedding decor dreams come true! Using dark Teal Ostrich Plumes and Peacock Tails they created captivating feather centerpieces transforming their wedding venue into an art deco dreamland! We couldn’t be happier for these two! Thank you for counting on The Feather Place for all of your “feathered” needs!

Harlem Nights | Academy Feathers

in COSTUME,FASHION,FEATHER TRENDS,STAGE & SCREEN

Harlem Nights’ Joe I. Tompkins was nominated for an Academy Award for best costume design and we can see why just by looking at this movie still of the lovely Jasmine Guy as Dominique La Rue. Of course we love the Ostrich Feather details used throughout the whole film! And while the movie is now a cult classic, the costume design is more than enough reason to watch and the Academy agreed!

Harlem Nights | Academy Feathers

“I originally thought we should shoot in black-and-white, but after researching, I decided to make black skin tones the most essential color in the film and use a limited palette. That would set off and highlight the beautiful skin tones of our cast, which was mostly black. I didn’t know what Eddie and Larry Paull and Joe Tompkins would think about this, so I created a color chart to demonstrate my idea. After seeing it, they supported the idea, and it became the basis for the look of the entire picture. In that environment, a few very strong color accents seemed to jump off the screen, but most importantly, the skin tones of the actors dominated each scene.” – Woody Omens, the film’s cinematographer

The National Gallery of Victoria fashion retrospective will be bringing together more than 120 designs including this luxurious Couture Restoration of a 1960’s blue Ostrich feathered Gown. Take an in depth look at the process needed to restore this gown to it’s original glory.

Couture Restoration of an Ostrich feathered Gown

The conservation team has worked on the dress for more than 100 hours.

“With this gown in particular a lot of the feathers were missing from the hip line and the hem,” said Bronwyn Cosgrove, the NGV’s senior conservator of textiles.

“I’d say it was probably about 90 per cent complete. Some original feathers were still present but had come apart or had come away from the under dress and that’s just a matter of securing those back in place and looking for original anchoring points through stitch marks and things like that.”

One of the main challenges the conservation team faced was finding the right shades of blue needed to restore the dress to its original glory. – http://www.abc.net.au/
