Birds of a Feather

1880 Accessory Set and Marjan Pejoski

This peculiar scarf and muff set, housed at The Costume Institute at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, represents the fashionable use of birds in 19th-century dress, which often featured bird components of feather plumes or a bird used in its entirety as seen here. The accessory set is also thought to draw attention to the wearer’s own swan-like neck; a strong feature of the period’s beauty ideal. In 2001, Icelandic artist Björk wore what has now become one of the most infamous red carpet dresses. Designed by Macedonian Marjan Pejoski, the frock referred to as the swan dress, was meant to symbolize fertility, a notion further reinforced by Björk as she left a trail of eggs down the red carpet.
