Catwalk Trend: Feather Trimmed Shoulders

This season shoulders are big news. From circles to huge pads to ruffle details to feathers, shoulders were barging their way up and down the catwalks in shows for both SS09 and Fall / AW09. From Italian designer Francesco Scognamiglio’s feather shoulder pads SS09:

To Givenchy’s Fall 09 amazing full feathered sleeve:

How to get from the catwalk to the sidewalk? I love this style and i just had to get me some of that trend… read on to see how I did

I went to The Woollen Mills trimmings department and bought a meter of black marabou feather trim €11.90 and a ribbed button vest top from Penney’s €4 and set to work.

I wanted a top that I would be able to wear either with jeans for a quirky casual look or with long black trousers, Givenchy style, for an on-trend evening look.

I cut the trim into three sections, stitched each piece along the left hand shoulder of the vest top and to keep the ends neat, I turned them under as I stitched to give a neat finish.

I was really pleased with the results.

    I really love that top. Could it look cute with a longer, drape-y kind of slouchy tank top? i’m loving them far too much recently. and the feather would totally set it off. I like your idea of pairing it with the black pants.

    Why thank you Aoife. I was pleased at how well it turned out!

    I think it would defo work with a slouchy tank or even a slouchy vest dress! My mind is a-wandering, you could even get feathers a slightly darker shade to what ever tank you are stitching them too, like mint green, with emerald green feathers… hmmm.
