Peacocks seem to be the rage this year.  Everywhere I look, it seems like fashion catalogues and collections have at least one or two items focused on peacocks or peacock feathers.

This beautiful national bird of India is famous for its long and colorful train and its unique feathers can be a coveted possession.  I remember when I was in school in India, a classmate brought in a feather that she was planning to use as a bookmark.  It was amazing how quickly a crowd gathered around her to admire that perfect feather …and this was in India where the peacock is relatively ahem ‘common’.  

Here are some peacock inspired fashion statements and accessories in the market today

Yes that wedding dress was for $1.5 million!  Made with brocade and real peacock feathers it took close to 8 months to create.

And finally for the little ones… a peacock hand puppet.  “Peek” says my not yet 2 year old – this one’s for you 🙂
