Fashion & Feathers

Tuesday, January 21, 2020

Human Ecology Building (HEB), Level T Display Cases

A collaboration between the Cornell Costume & Textile Collection, Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and the Cornell University Museum of Vertebrates, Fashion & Feathers explores the complex and nebulous space between inspiration and exploitation. Birds are an endless source of inspiration for fashion designers; however, they are also exploited for their feathers and some species nearly hunted to extinction for their plumes. In this exhibition, we highlight the beauty and tragedy of feathers in fashion show the influence of birds on dress across the globe.
