Feathers (and fringe), remnants of the 1960s hippie dippy days, surfaced on runways from Paris to New York for the summer season. Birds of the feather, world famous designers all, used feathers in glam gowns and dresses for subtle, uber feminine details and added texture. Feather looks came in all sizes, colors and styles. Whole looks from designers like Alexander McQueen and Zac Posen harkened back to days when eye-popping confections on the silver screen nearly stole the show. (Think Fred and Ginger or Zeigfeld or any fairy tale.) Other designers, like Two Skirts’ Tucker limited themselves to feathers as accents.

(ed. note: To local fly shops and fly fishermen- Feathers as fashion wasn’t my idea. Hope you got lots of flies tied before the price of feathers went up!)
