The ‘Feather Family’ Creating Costumes for Moulin Rouge

In Paris, France, you can’t have cabaret without glimmering rhinestones, dazzling sequins, or, most importantly, feathers. Since 1929, Maison Février has been responsible for adorning cabaret performers in an extravagant array of gear and garb. They have created elaborate costumes for greats, such as Josephine Baker and Zizi Jeanmaire. Today, under the watchful eye of Editte Février, the latest generation of the “feather family” continues the legacy, spending months creating showstopping garments for the storied cabaret, Moulin Rouge.
