I have decided to create a feather piece using bought feathered headbands from Primark, these were only 50p each and after buying 14 of them starting pinning them onto a mannequin to create either a shoulder piece or neck piece.

I've detached the band and pulled the peacock feather off as it stands out when they are layered over each other, I have been inspired by Lady gaga's outfit at the 2009 MTV VMA awards where she wore a Jean Paul Gaultier dress with the neckpiece designed and made by Keko Hainswheeler

I am very inspired by Keko Hainswheelers work, using recycled materials and describes his work as  “ecclectic, embellished and crafted” Hainswheeler has been known to create a corset made out of nails and likes using industrial materials like metals and plastics because people don't see the potential in the items.

I will continue to update my progress in this little project I have set myself, so watch this space. =]
