Yolan Cris Feather Fashion


Yolancris is a very beautiful story about a bridal dress design company.

Is was started by two sisters, Yolanda and Cristina, hens the name is a short combination of their two names.

They learnt the art of making bridal gowns from their mother while growing up in Barcelona.

They then opened up their own line of Haute Couture wedding dresses and evening wear.

Yolancris style is strongly focused on the natural and authentic women.

As always we are most strongly on their designs that include feathers.

For anyone who is looking for inspiration for their next project or fashion statement, I hope these picture give you some food for thought.

Malania Trump - Feather Fashion

America please welcome your new first lady.

Melania Trump in a stunning white feather gown at the Elton John aids rally. 

To tell you all the honest truth I really don't care much for politics and I didn't even vote.

But I really did think that I would find a lot more pictures of our new first lady in feathers.

This was all I found though.

Anyway this is one stunning dress and I do believe that we wrote a post about it in the past but I couldn't find it.

With that said

Donald and Melania Trump, welcome to the white house.

Feathers In The News - A Modern Thanksgiving Story

When I saw this article on Northjersey.com not only did it make me smile, it gave me a real sense of joy. It's absolutely amazing how powerful culture and tradition can be.

These Ramapo Indians all gathered for a powwow on a cold and rainy day in October.  Some of them came waring traditional garb and danced and played drums.

They wrote feathers as you can see, but it wasn't about fashion, it was abut connecting with nature.

Because feathers are just one of nature's beautiful creations.

Read the whole article here.

Alessandro Michele

So Alessandro Michele is the head designer for Gucci these days.
It seams that he is creating a full spiral of fashion history all bound up into one.

What I mean by that is as follows. There are fashions that go in and out of style, like some sort of cosmic fashion circle.

But the fashions for the most part don't look the same when they they around from time to time.
Kind of like bell bottoms were in during the sixties and seventies. Then they came back in the nineties but were most popular as wide leg pants (I personally wore bell bottoms in the nineties and would love to wear them again)
And that's the idea of the spiral, things come around but at a different level, up or down is irrelevant.

Alessandro is combining all different styles from all eras and creating a wonderful synergy that will certainly give a place in fashion history.

Feather Gloves Fall Winter 2016 - 2017

It's not even starting to get cold outside, it is already cold outside. I may not have started wearing gloves yet but I did take out my North face and wear it at night.

So I may have already written a feather gloves post but I definitely never saw these pictures before so get your gloves our is almost winter.

Now these Givenchy feather trimmed gloves are what came to my mind when I thought about feather gloves. Not them exactly but the style. It's not hard at all to attach some feather trim to your gloves and there you go.
Now these gloves by Adam Lambert (seen above) are really something else, super cool and totally classy. I think that I like them so much because I would have never of thought to have the feathers going in the direction of the fingers.
Ann Demeulemeester was totally being influenced by batman when designing these beautiful feather gloves.
Just to get an idea what you can make for Halloween take a look at these gloves above.

How To Make Feather Eyes

So I don't know if you would call these feather eyes or something else but they are a super great idea for almost any costume that you are planning on.
So the first step would be to buy the feathers that you need, yes obviously but still worth mentioning.

The next thing you are going to need is eyelash adhesive. There are those of the opinion that Duo surgical adhesive from MAC works better, but either will do the job.

A word of caution about glitter-use only cosmetic grade glitter, decoction glitter can damage the skin.

Next decide how you want to arrange the feathers and cut wherever needed.
Put some adhesive on each feather and press gently onto the skin.

Happy Halloween

Manish Arora

Manish Arora is a very different fashion designer in my opinion.
Manish from Mumbai and all of his creations are wild and full of neon bright colors.

When looking at his designs it's hard to believe that he started out studying commerce and then moved to design and fashion.

The best way that I could think to describe his style would be to call it "eastern psychodelic".

And if such a term doesn't exist yet then I can say I have coined it here.
Did I mention the bright neon colors?  Yeah I think his stuff is really cool.

And of course we are all about the feathers.

Albertus Swanepoel Feather Hats

Now I really like this guy. Even without meeting the guy I could just tell that he is cool.

And is not just because he is South African, but he dose get extra points just for that.

But what I really love are these pictures of him with these drop dead gorgeous women.

Never mind that, let's take a look at some of his feather hats.

Simple yet elegant.
This one below is amazing because it was made for target.
And these last two are absolutely beautiful, but I doubt you will see them on the street.
