Description

The design concept was to explore an ethical alternative to feathers in an environmentally friendly manner. This design was inspired by feather treatments used in couture gowns by designers such as Givenchy, Jean Paul Gauthier and Serkin Cura’s Spring Summer 2015 show. Feathers are rarely associated with cruelty to animals yet, according to PETA (2015) the feathers are usually plucked from the animal while it is alive. This design research project illustrates an exploration using an alternative to feathers in an environmentally and ethical manner.
