Designing With Feather Shapes

Here I talk about my inspiration for creating the elements and shapes for the Raven costume that illustrates Jade’s story in Glamourie. I then explain how I went on to create the commercial designs from these elements. Finally, I discuss the collars we made to illustrate how you can use the instructions in the book to make variations in size, colour and detail.
