Matthew Williams – Ostrich Feather Trimmed Dress

Coming across this dress was a short and pleasant adventure for me.

I first found it mentioned on the website lyst.com quoting another site farfetch.com, where it was being sold for $2,513.

If that seems like an crazy amount to you it is simply because you are not buying fashion designer clothing. I only mention this because I think it’s a crazy amount to spend on a dress, but because I write about the fashion industry all the time I know what this kind of apparel are going for.

The thing that we need to understand is these are not just clothing, but works of art.

This dress truly is a work of art. From the patterns of the lace upper through the long ostrich feather trim, everything is put together perfectly.

True talent can be seen in the way the green lace pattern gradually gives way to the feather trim.

Farfetch.com, where the dress was last being sold is in German. Thanks to Google these language barriers have been torn down while surfing the internet. But the description of the dress said NUDE colored, and thought that this might be a case of bad translation, but its not.

After being educated on nude colors, I had to find a bit more about the designer Matthew Williamson.

Matthew is British and born in 1971. If you really want to hear all about his carrier here is a link to the right page in Wikipedia.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matthew_Williamson

For me these are the highlights.

Matthew is known for his bright colors. In 1997 he displayed the “Electric Angels” at the London Fashion week. I find these designs to be breath taking.


In recent years Matthew Williams has produced his own line of home decor. His taste in interior design is right up my ally, absolutely incredible.

DIY – Stage Worthy Feather Fans

Now I know that have written in the past about how to make your own feather fans, but these girls totally took this to another level.



Billy Wilburn and Corey Shelsta

These two wrote out in detail how they made these fans so if you are interested in such a project you can take a look at their link below.

What they say in the beginning is very true, these fans are a bit expensive, but if you are not into the project you can buy the fan HERE.

But if you are going to go for it with this kind of project then we have just the feathers that you are going to be needing.


If you try this out, take some pictures and share them with us.

Danielle is a real DIY, home made blogger that’s been at it full force since 2011.

If you ask me though this project of hers is something that should be coming out of a designer school.

She did such a great job with this project I am amazed. Look at these detailed pictures explaining exactly how to do this.

Brown’s Feather Trim T-shirt

I know that I already wrote one about feather t-shirts, but this one is special.

Not only is the t-shirt itself stunning, but the company Browns, just seems so super cool.

So lets start off with this super cool shirt, and then we can talk about the great company that is selling it.

They say it will make you feel like  a lemon, and if that’s not good then drink a tequila. Yeah that’s not really what said but its what I heard.

Never mind what they wrote, first take a look at the shirt.


But you should read what they wrote, because its cute and funny.

Also as I said they seem to be a super cool company just take a look at the about page.

I love it that they are really into looking for new talent.

Go Browns!

Detachable Feather Trim Jacket

I know that I have written about how you can easily add feather trim to jazz up just about anything, but the idea of a detachable feather trim is a new one.

I got the idea from this great jacket from ZARA.

https://m.zara.com/il/en/-c434811p4226015.html#utm_referrer=https://www.google.co.il/




Think about how easy it would be to attach feather fringe to a piece of material with buttons and be able just snap it on to your jacket, dress, or whatever.

Even better you can have a few different trims that can attach to the same dress and change it up every time.

Take a look at all of our fine feather fringes and see what you can put together.

And of course if you do share some pictures with us on Facebook.

Lipsy Feather Trim VIP Dress


I found this stunning dress on a website called ASOS.com, and it was out of stock.

Not that surprising being that it is amazing and was being sold for 33 BPS.

Here is a link to the web site, you should take a look at the video to get a real feel for the dress.

http://m.asos.com/lipsy-vip/lipsy-vip-feather-trim-dress/prd/2433573?CTAref=Recently+Viewed

Lipsy, which is the company that makes the dress seems to be really cool. The reason I had never heard of them before is probably because they are British.

Funny that makes such a difference, but you know that it does.

Lipsy seems to be a super cool company. They have a whole section called DENIM DOLLS & BRINGING THE 90’s TO NOW.

Any of you who have been following me for some time already know that I have a weird 90’s fetish.

And the denim? Remember this post

http://thefeatherstore.blogspot.co.il/2017/06/summer-series-feather-shorts.html?m=1


Anyway they also have a very nice feather high heal shoe that has already sparked my desire to write a new feather shoe post.

I hope you are all enjoying the summer!

Scarlet Johansson Feather Skirt

This past March, the American actress Scarlet Johansson showed up to the premier for her new movie “Ghost In The Shell” wearing a super cool feather skirt.

From what I read even the long custody battle that she is going through with her ex-husband didn’t stop her from being in good spirits.

This is no big surprise, Scarlet grew up dealing with difficult situations. She tells how her family was on welfare when she was a child.

If she was able to come from something like that and get to where she is today, she must have learnt to cope very well.

Ghost In The Shell seems to be a cool movie about a super cop in the future that needs to stop terrorist that have learnt to use mind control.



Right the feather skirt! Very cool, and I also love those boots.
