Today, it was all about feathers.
On the symposium of the Fashion Museum on ‘Birds of paradise’ I was inspired by the rich history of feathers in fashion. Multiple speakers talked about ostrich feathered fans, rare peacock parasols and the amazing hats by Philip Treacy for Isabella Blow.
The most inspiring lecture was on feathers and fetishism. The ‘vulgarity’ of Hollywood, the castration fear of men, the white feathers as a symbol of pure, non-virgin, sexuality: I feel enlightened.
As soon as I came home, I covered my skin with feathers.
Natural, not dyed, pure.
Good lingerie is not merely the result of passion for design. It is the product of craftsmanship.
In this craft there are different vehicles to get to the destination and I like to try out a variety of rides.
I enjoy every step of the process, but there is nothing like arriving in the new world you created.
Thank you, co-divers, enjoy the ride.
