‘Feathered Fascination For the Fashion Forward'
Drawing on her background as a current Costumiere in the film industry and combining it with her skills as a taxidermist, Tamsin Pearson creates truly one of kind headpieces and accessories.
‘It all started by not having a hat to wear to my cousin’s wedding so I attached a magpie to a headband and wore that instead. Needless to say it caused a bit of a stir and gave people something to talk about!’
Soon realising there were very few unusual headpieces on the market, In Full Plume was born.
As a vegan and animal lover the welfare of the birds used in her work is at the forefront of her mind. She takes great care when sourcing. All birds have either died of natural causes or are obtained from UK licensed Gamekeepers in accordance with UK Wildlife & Countryside Act of 1981, and would otherwise have been destroyed.
Trained by master Taxidermist Mike Gadd during her Fine Art degree in 2013, Tamsin has been producing quality work ever since. Paired with her costume knowledge and millinery experience she aims to use this traditional art form to create ethically sourced wearable art for the adventurously stylish.
As of July 2018 Tamsin became a successful candidate on The Prince's Trust Young Enterprise Programme.
All pieces are lovingly made by hand in her London studio and come packaged in eco-friendly cardboard box with lid, acid-free tissue paper and a pouch of dried lavender to keep those peski moths away!
Whether you choose something subtle from the 'First and Foremost' collection or a whole animal statement piece, you are sure to turn some heads.
Alternative brides, bridesmaids and wedding goers, keep your eyes peeled for the first bridal collection!
