This morning, I once again ventured north for another enjoyable trip to the Bowes Museum to view the Plumes and Feathers in Fashion exhibition. This small exhibition explores the elegance and refinement of feathers in the fashion industry from accessible accessories, to the truly avant-garde. Below are a few of my images.
The exhibition is accompanied by an informative brochure – charting the history of the plumassiers (feather processing) to the mythology surrounding the different plumes.
The exhibition is showing throughout the Easter holidays and, if you’re interested in political satire, you can also catch the equally enthralling sketches by Gerald Scarfe.
