Prom Planning - Part 3 (Peacock Pretty)

February 23, 2010

Peacock feathers are a favorite at Breeziway. In honor of our show at Foggy Bottom in Wichita, we are introducing a new linear design that features the diversity of peacock breeds now available in the states. The first in this collection is made of India Blue Peacock feathers; the most common, but ever vibrant breed of peafowl. This piece is made of several small eye feathers and one sword feather at the top, with a rare sword, eye combo feather as a tail. Royal blue schlappen, marabou and a Swarovski crystal accent are added for extra color and bling. This is a versatile piece that can be worn with or without a birdcage veil, placed along side a bun or twist, or even as a funky accent with a side or back ponytail. Several of many prom/special occasion gowns in this year's designer collection that we think would look fantastic with this design are below. For some reason, I am drawn to the simple elegance created by the peacock feathers with the solid colors of the majority of the chosen gowns. We will share some of the other peacock color options in future posts.

There is some truth to the 14th century phrase attributed to Chaucer,

"Proud as a Peacock"!
