Feathers take flight in the world of fashion

Implications - Feathers have been worn as fashion accessories for centuries, and now they’re coming back. Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2008 collection was greatly influenced by birds, with elaborate head pieces and dresses inspired by our feathered friends. Designers have spent the last decade exploring the 60s, the 70s and most recently, the 80s. In these complicated and high-tech times, fashion designers are looking to go back to basics, turning to mother nature for inspiration.
