    Feather Alert
    Designers Indulge Their Nesting Instincts
    June 3, 2004 – For many designers this season, inspiration came from the skies—literally. Donna Karan embroidered swooping birds at hip height on her evening dresses, while Proenza Schouler used pheasant feathers for a luxurious fashion lift. At Oscar de la Renta and Ralph Rucci, avian embellishment meant drifts of marabou and grouse; Alexander McQueen, meanwhile, made Björk-ready gowns complete with feathered cowls. There was even a full-fledged Hitchcock moment, as Undercover's Jun Takahashi topped some of his looks with scary headdresses. "I wanted to express fear," said the designer, who after experimenting with a variety of animals decided that "the bird masks looked most frightening." Paging Tippi Hedren...

    real feathers (especially the bird swooping on donna karan) literally make me want to throw up. I'm not sure why. I just think it's gross but I mean I think birds and the whole motif is pretty. just real feathers, blech :sick:

    That said, I love those prada mules :heart:

    You really have to be careful with feathers, they can look amazing or just disastrous.

    Out of the above, I only like the Emma Cook dress. (Are they feathers even?) :flower:

    Trends are indeed recycled. I mean feathers were BIG last fall. If you type "feather/s" or probably "birds" in our search feature you'll see a topic on feathers last Fall.
