Founded by Margaret Porritt in 1972, Feathers Boutique has grown to become one of Melbourne’s most iconic fashion brands.
Along with a talented and passionate team, Porritt remains at the helm of the company today where she oversees the design of each and every garment, guaranteeing the highest quality is obtained and ensures the brand is ever evolving.
Margaret is informed by over fifty years of experience in the fashion industry. Growing up admiring the talents of her milliner mother, she formed an appreciation for aesthetics and design from a young age. After working in the UK for Norman Hartnell former dressmaker to the Queen, Margaret undertook a millinery apprenticeship with her mother before deciding to start her own women’s wear brand Feathers.
Now with a succession of fifteen stores and over fifty employees, Feathers is proving to be as strong as ever. Margaret credits these results to three main elements; her team, (many of whom have been with the company for over twenty-five years) the quality of the fabrics and manufacturing, and the ability to rapidly turn around product from design-phase to shop floor.
Feathers is recognised as one of Australia’s greatest women’s wear brands, Porritt and her team are proud to offer women of all ages and silhouettes endless sophistication, practicality, and style.
Feathers will appear in High Tea Runway.
