Dear Laura Bennett,

We have a question about whether you used real or faux fur in your collection. Could you confirm, please?


We were not allowed to use fur in our collections. I am assuming the garment in question is the small jacket over the long lace dress. It is made of marabou feathers that come as a dense fringe. I sewed the fringe in rows on a fabric background. Even up close Tim couldn't figure out if it was fur or not, or how it was made. It does look very furry but it's definitely feathers.
Let me know if there are any more questions.
