    The latest Feathers collection abstracts the flamboyant colours, movement and energy of feather-clad showgirls and iconic female performers. Each piece aims to capture a sense of glamour and colour in motion - while radiating feminine power.

    When I was younger, I was obsessed with Marilyn Monroe. I collected pictures, books, devoured documentaries and watched all her films.

    So it's no wonder, Gentleman Prefer Blondes is one of my favourite films. As well as the scripting, sets, songs, Jane Russell's comic timing, the Technicolour film - the outfits alone are worth the adoration. The designer William Travilla - who designed many of Marilyn's outfits - created all the costumes: from the red sparkly dresses in the opening number Little Rocks; to the iconic pink gown from Marilyn's Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend performance - and many more in between.

    This piece aims to combine everything I love about that film: the colours, the energy, the feminine sass, the dancing and the amazing chemistry between its two female stars that powers the film.
