Balmain | c. 1950
Sequins, feathers and rhinestones. What my dreams are made of.
Evening Dress | c. 1885
They could have fluffed it out a bit more for the photo, but it’s still fantastic. Feathers make me tingle.
Feathered Cape | c. 1895
Black and green cock feathers fashion this dramatic cape of the 1890s. The artificially curled feathers are mounted onto cotton fabric and the whole cape is lined with black silk satin. The cape would have been worn over large leg of mutton sleeves which were popular at this time. These would have further reinforced the winged shoulder of the cape. The general effect of such an outfit, worn with high heels, would have made the wearer cut quite an imposing figure.
