Plush Curled Ostrich Jacket
The feathers on this jacket are a combination of marabou and curly ostrich, which give it a deep, plush feel and look. The base fabric is a soft four ply silk crepe and the lining is silk charmeuse. This version has a bold silhouette, but variations in shaping and the addition of sleeves can give this jacket a completely different look.
In this design, the volume of the ostrich plume is maximized by twisting the flue, along with marabou, into thick boas. The whispy flue is then curled by hand, to create the luxurious texture.
The boas are sewn, by hand, to the base fabric, following the style lines of the jacket, and the piece is finished off with a supple lining.
