Well it’s that time of the year again when a lot of man hours and many late nights seem to take over our run up to our Christmas holidays, anyway it turns out to be well worth it, having the privilege of working with one the the most prominent couture designers in the world, Nicholas Oakwell.
We had the privilege of working with Nicholas last season also, supplying him with a variety of hand dyed feathers . The process started with a personal visit from Nicholas where we discussed the many feathers available that we use in our showgirl designs and our bespoke headpieces. Selecting a choice of ostrich, pheasant and goose, we then worked closely with Nicholas achieving the specific colours required. Once the several hundreds of metres were ready they were sent to Nicholas Oakwell Couture and were then feather by feather, individually stitched on by hand,to produce the most beautiful feather coats.
So as soon as the new season collection has been showed (17th Jan 2013) we will endevour to post an update on the site giving you the privilidge of seeing the most amazing use of feathers yet, the colours and texture that will be used are truely amazing and we at Maxine’s Feathers a really exited is seeing the finished products
