Hey, I could really do with your help..

This is my final design: for my college second year project on 1920s clothing.

Now - - this is going to be showcased on a catwalk in june next year and I do NOT want it looking cheap or tacky, so for the fur, I don't want to spend 1.99 on that horrible fraying cheap rubbish that seems to be the only thing you can actually buy in the 'fur' department...!

As you can see in the picture I want it quite long fur, and I don't think short fur will look so nice, but the only nice long fur I can find is bright orange and pink..!

I was wondering if anybody was aware of a shop (UK), online (that posts to the UK) or not, that sells good quality faux fur that's not too expensive (as I'm a student!).

If not, is there such thing as brown marabout feathers?

I have come across a few websites but no luck so far. Any help would be greatly appreciated..!

MacCulloch & Wallis stock a bunch of high quality fake furs. You'll pay for it, but it's guaranteed to be gorgeous (and I've bought from them before, both online and in-store. They do a lot of fashion trade business...)

Don't forget doll supply stores, some of those teddies look like they are made of some pretty plush fur!
