Feathers will fly

Feathers are big this Winter so prepared to get poked in the neck by them when you are kissing your fashionable friends. So here is a post about feathers, I think I am in love...

The latest copy of Vogue has a feature called Diary of a dress, which focusses on Burberry Prorsom's feather dress which first headed down the runway on February 18 2008, during Burberry Prorsom's autumn/winter 08 show in Milan.

A bit like this...

You may have seen the dress in the Burberry ad campaign on Rosie Huntingdon Whiteley, who models in the campaign alongside the delectable Sam Riley. The feature is actually really interesting and notes how the dress is flown all around the globe, requested by the likes of Demi Moore, Kate Hudson, Mary J Blige, Gwyneth Paltrow and Agyness Deyn and repaired a few times in between.

In case you are interested the magazines who request it include, W, Dazed, Grazia, Tatler, French Vogue, Another Magazine, The Financial Times, US Glamour, L'Officiel, British Vogue, Italian Vogue and I think thats it. Yeah it seems like its only dry cleaned once too, hmmm. I personally love this feathered dress and here are a few more feather looks you might want to go for....

Topshop's turkey feather cape hits so many trends at the same time and at £60, its a touch cheaper than anything Burberry have to offer.

ASOS have a great feather fascinator up on the site for £18

(i'm obsessed with this girl's hair)

New Look have a more subtle black top with feather details, which includes feather detail on the neckline at the back

Warehouse have come up trumps with the below dress, perfect for Xmas parties!

If you have loads of money bag yourself this Fendi feather trimmed dress...

love this post.
I also really into feathers at the moment, and saw that feature in vogue.
I love the clothes from the high street you picked out. My plan was to buy some feather trim and sew in on to everything!
