This collection features several colorways of an Ostrich feather print. I got the idea for the design when a friend showed me a wedding dress that had a skirt made entirely with feathers. I loved the idea but wondered how that skirt would hold up in real life...how would you wash a feather skirt? I tried to capture the movement of feathers in these designs...and to blend the fanciful with the practical!
