Feathers and plumes have always been extremely popular in the international fashion scene. They are linked to glamorous dresses and garments designed by Dior, Yves-Saint-Laurent, Chanel, Alexander McQueen and many others. This book deals with the role of feathers and plumes in fashion of the 19th, 20th and 21st century and gives an overview of the highlights and sources of inspiration of these haute couture items. Especially the plumassiers de Paris are well-known for their expertise, but feathers and plumes are also linked to Marlène Dietrich, flapper girls and Belle Époque. Not only the most beautiful garments and accessories are shown but also the story behind their creation: the designers, producers, people who wear them.
