It took nearly 9,300 hours of work and a few twists and turns for the « Feather » cabinet from Serkan Cura to take off. Born from the imagination of the artist plumassier and his association with Maison Rapin, this piece of furniture entirely covered with rooster feathers (naturally fallen from moulting) is a unique jewel, worthy of the craziest cabinets de curiosités. A real change of course after the haute couture dresses of Jean Paul Gaultier and the Victoria Secret parades! A real bet for Serkan, aficionado of challenges since he is 13 years old ! Born in Antwerp, Serkan grew up in Brussels. It is there that he discovered on the flea market of the city, a bird of paradise: from then on, the passion ever bloomed.
The artist learns to sew, to create hats, corsets, and grows an interested in fur. He then joins the prestigious Royal Academy of Antwerp, and the workshops of Olivier Strelli. The latter gives him a chance. Supreme consecration follows, with the house Jean Paul Gaultier in September 2007. “I learned a lot from Mr. Gaultier, for more than four years, my hands were at the service of his creations.”
In 2011, Serkan buys the stock of a large plumasserie house and sets up his ownbusiness. The dresses that he designed for his illustrious star clients will forever remain a secret … It is in a charming courtyard, in the Marais, that the artist has built his nest. A workshop unlike any other where he stages his inspirations and stacks boxes of feathers of the most beautiful specimens from all over the world! So many treasures that will soon adorn exceptional creations.
