Feather & Find by Heather Dixon Features Fashion with a Feel-Good Mission

posted by: f.i.g.

Can fashion be both elegant and eco-friendly? Luxurious and down-to-earth? Uplifting and ethically grounded? A new collection coming soon to Fashion Industry Gallery proves the answer is absolutely “yes.”

Showing at f.i.g.’s upcoming Spring 1 Market, October 23 – 25, Heather Dixon’s Feather & Find captivates via resort-ready styles that flaunt figure-affirming cuts and bespoke prints. Think tiered skirts in tempting tropical tones, effortlessly ruffled wraps and comfy, camera-ready kaftans.

Says the designer, “My purpose is to flatter, compliment and make a woman feel good. I have always had a good eye for colors, prints, textiles and fit. Ever since I was a child, I wanted to make everyone and everything look beautiful.”

In addition to this feel-good mission, Dixon also adheres to an “ethical approach to fashion.” Feather & Find highlights “deliberate attention to the people, planet and product itself,” through handmade items which highlight artisanal details while creatively minimizing waste. In fact, the scraps left behind in the making of a maxi-dress may be transformed into a pocket lining, art piece or even a doll sold to raise funds for a neighboring orphanage.

In closing, Dixon notes an inspiring quote from poet and author Maya Angelou which crystallizes the spirit of Feather & Find: "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
