Today, Erin Fetherston premiered her third short film titled “Birds of a Fether” on Style.com, directed by Marisa Crawford. The film features Erin’s Fall/Winter 2009 collection and features cameo’s from some of Erin’s favorite models and muses including Reni Lane, Kelsey Barrett of the all female punk band Effi Briest, actress Paz De La Huerta, model/actress Ingrid Schram, as well as models Daria Strokous, Kelsey Close, Rudi Ovchinnikova, Sacha Blue and Karina G.
The story, loosely inspired by the tale of the pied piper, shows Fetherston uncovering a magical trumpet which has washed ashore beneath the Brooklyn Bridge. Under the power of its enchantment, the designer takes to the streets of New York City and begins to collect a following of characters who emerge from the stoops and windows of the city’s apartments, restaurants and ally-ways, all of whom are drawn to the magic. Fetherston and her collective, all dressed in the designer’s collection, carry on in a near manic and highly visual procession through the streets of the West Village and Tribeca.
A medley of dynamic girls make appearances in this film, including musical artists Reni Lane, whose Universal Records album will drop this September, and Kelsey Barrett of the all female punk band Effi Briest. Actress Paz De La Huerta makes a surprise cameo and Fetherston favorite, model/actress Ingrid Schram also plays a role in the film – her second time getting in front of the camera for Fetherston. Models Daria Strokous, Kelsey Close, Rudi Ovchinnikova, Sacha Blue, and Karina G also join the procession of beauties who partake in this magical, fashionable parade through the city.
For the first time, Erin Fetherston is partnering with online retailer Shopbop for hosting the collection as seen in “Birds of a Fether” for purchase and will be running a special promotion to enter to win an all-expenses paid trip to New York City and tickets to the Erin Fetherston Spring 2010 show during this September’s Fashion Week.
