This book examines the unique role of feathers and plumes used throughout the 19th, 20th and 21st century to create exclusive, eye-catching designs, and explores their wide-ranging sources of inspiration. Focusing particularly on the Plumassiers de Paris(craftsmen famous for their expertise in the preparation and handling of feathers). Birds of Paradise also features classic designs worn by stars of the stage and screen, such as Marlene Dietrich, the Flapper Girls of the 1920s and those from the time of the Belle Epoque (1871-1914) in France and Belgium, inspired by the wonderful literature, music, theatre and visual art of the time. Beautifully photographed, showcasing some of the most exquisite garments and accessories; this is the story behind their creation - from the designers, craftsmen and ultimately the people who wore them.
