Plumes & Feathers in Fashion
June Swann, Alistair O'Neill, Joanna Marschner, Kaat Debo
'This catalogue is published in association with the exhibition Birds of Paradise: Plumes & Feathers in Fashion from 20 March until 24 August 2014 at the fashion museum province of Antwerp. This exhibition is an ode to the elegance and refinement of the application of plumes and feathers in fashion and haute couture. Through a mixture of accessories, garments and couture dresses, the different characteristics of the various plumes and feathers are highlighted: sophistication, femininity, wealth, luxury, but also dark romance.'
