pretty polly

Emily Bullock is an artist and jeweler who uses feathers from road kill and dead pets to create contemporary wearable art. The death of her parakeets inspired her to make the Budgerigar Brassiere, which won the Mac's Bizarre Bra award at the WorldofWearableArt in 2002. She gives the boys of Proenza Schouler and the countless others who use feathers on the runway a run for their money.
