Many people criticized this dress, we don’t know if they actually killed so many peacocks for the feathers to make a dress, or if they just picked up the feathers. If they killed the peacocks for the feathers, which is illegal in many countries, it is a controversy. Morally and ethical is bad, and I don’t think any bride will want to wear this dress, if they only knew how those birds were killed just for fashion. It is not the first time animals are killed for fashion, if we think of so many fur coats, so popular years ago.

    I love it…and it gives respect to peacock to want to dress like one… and peacocks moult and you just pick the feathers up off the ground…and give them a good clean…. and they even come in albino, so you can get white, which would also be super cool…. my opinion
