Feather Boas

Feather Boas

Fashion Synopsis

“Why don’t you come up and see me sometime?”

Who could deny the blonde-bombshell Mae West, wrapped up in a flirty feather boa, when she made a request like that? Girls had known for ages the power of the soft and fluffy feathers, and boys soon discovered the wonderful wrap when glam hit the scene in the late 60’s.

Glam rockers like David Bowie and Marc Bolan of T-Rex wrapped themselves in feminine frills and pranced around with the flirty feather boa. Baby soft marabou, super sexy ostrich, and over-the-top turkey…the birds sacrificed their feathers for fashion, and so the boa was not to be used lightly. Whether boy or girl, a floating feather wrap was an emblem of the sexual revolution…never before had something so good seemed so bad.
