Be prepared to ruffle a few feathers as plumes make a triumphant return to the runway for 2015. Some designers went bold while others chose a more subdued approach to floaty feathers.

Christopher Kane, Fendi and Balmain are just some of the fashion houses who got in on the avian fixation to enrich skirts, trousers, tops and, at times, entire outfits - as seen at Erdem, who opted for drama with full-feathered dresses. Christopher Kane went with feathered accents on waists as did Irish designer Simone Rocha, who opted for a more subtle take with wispy feathers on the hems of jackets and dresses. This look oozes glamour, think Julianne Moore wearing a metallic and sequinned feathered Givenchy gown at this year's Golden Globes and Homeland star Claire Danes who wore a feather-covered Valentino gown. If you'd rather not invest in a feathered look head-to-toe, pick up some plume-enhanced accessories. On the high street you'll find them in abundance  across everything  from handbags to  statement earrings.
