Serkan Cura keeps pushing the envelope within the noble craft of feather making. In one of his more outré creations, plumes were worked to resemble fur and fashioned into a hairy pantsuit. Feathers also sprouted from the hips on artfully crafted corsets, another Cura specialty, and were arranged like exotic flowers to create sculptural shoulder pieces.

There was plenty of theatricality, mainly of the burlesque variety. Cura needn’t have bothered with the badly choreographed performance at the rundown Theatre Déjazet in Paris. His impeccable craftsmanship spoke for itself.
