Freaky Feathered Fashion

The Jess Eaton Roadkill Couture Line is Made from Dead Animal Remains

— June 19, 2011 — Fashion
Grotesque and unseemly at first glance, the Jess Eaton Roadkill Couture collection is certainly eerie, but beautiful and striking in its own respect. The collection is comprised of gorgeous feathered headpieces, neckpieces and jackets, but with a catch -- it is made entirely from the remains of dead animals that may otherwise go unused. What sets Eaton's designs apart from other fashion houses who use fur and feathers in their collections is that she only uses the remains of animals that died of natural causes, have been hit by cars or that have been killed for food.

The creatively creepy collection debuted at Brighton Fashion Week Couture Show last Friday. The collection features eccentric pieces such as a necklace made from the skulls of 12 dead pheasants, a bolero jacket made from the furs of 50 white rats eaten by her friend’s reptile and a hat made from four magpie wings.

Jess Eaton says her creations are only meant to be beautiful, not outrageous, and that she's not out to shock people. She simply sees the beauty in both life and death and wishes to show other people that something good can always be made from something bad.

Sounds Gaga-esque if you ask me; perhaps Eaton could commission the singing sensation to wear one of her pieces on the red carpet!
