Feather Drum is a beautifully crafted and curated collection of future classics for women and girls. The philosophy centres on high-quality natural fabrics (organic or recycled wherever possible), modern, timeless shapes and well-made pieces that work hard in your wardrobe season after season.
Founder Kelly-Lee Wright is a fast-emerging designer originally from the UK, whose heart has taken her from a fast-paced life in London, to Germany, Italy and now to the raw beauty of the east coast of Australia.
“Confident and comfortable in her own skin, the Feather Drum woman favours classics with an edge over hard-core trends, but she’s not afraid to experiment with bold shapes,” says Kelly-Lee. “She loves to channel her inner tomboy but is just as at ease in feminine dresses.”
Sustainability and ethically made fashion is very important at Feather Drum. Created and patterned in Australia, the designs are thoughtful and considered, to ensure the fit and make-quality results in a collection of long-term investment pieces, lessening the environmental impacts associated with fast fashion.
Feather Drum chooses to partner only with makers who carry the GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certification and demonstrate socially sustainable practices, including provision of safe work conditions and fair wages.
In the girls’ collection, look out for the “clothes that grow” label that signals the piece will grow with your child, extending its time in the wardrobe before being passed down – think adjustable waist bands and ties, styles that can be worn as dresses first and smock tops later and maxi lengths in skirts and dresses which can then turn to midi lengths as the years go by.
