any idiot would know that tail feathers grow and fall out quite regularly, you can buy them in shops in wildlife conservation parks!!! the dress has its own charm, but i would not wear something like it fr my wedding.

I knew a woman who owned a peacock herself and she did not kill her peacock to get the feathers to make her, hmm, I guess you could call them costers. I believe she just took the feathers that naturally fell off.

For all the bird lovers who think these peacock were killed, India is right next door to China. The peacock is India's national bird and it is against the law to kill them. India is a big damn country with a lot of peacocks and a lot of poor people. Many of the country's destitute make a few pennies here and there collecting moulted peacock feathers and bringing them to a central collection facility where they are paid for what they bring in. And that is pretty much the source of the entire world's commercial supply of peacock feathers. The birds are fine. They get better treatment than the Indian peasants that collect their feathers.

I commented on another website about this dress being exquisite, but now seeing the bodice.... it has been ruined. The bodice is made of tacky elderly-home fabric and it spoils it. If Galliano had made this Im sure it would have been executed with more sophistication with a cleaner, sharper bodice cut in an expensive fabric.
