If you’re a bird, I’m a bird

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.
