In the form of personal narratives, Eva Sichelschmidts’s biography »Allure of the Feather. A Life as a Fashionista, Muse, Style Icon« gives an account of the hat designer Fiona Bennett’s unconventional lifestyle in the midst of former West Berlin’s turbulent creative scene.
The book contains ca. 130 photographs, partly from Bennett’s personal archive and party taken for the book by famous photographers like Joachim Gern or Ulrike Schamoni. In spite of the many images, Fiona Bennett preferred a more modest book design in the style of a novel or diary to the elaborate style of a coffee-table book.
