I'm now thinking of the complexities of dress design for people with wings sprouting out their back. It must actually present quite a bit of a faff and some additional challenges...

I actually really enjoy doing costume design for people with wings :) It is another thing to think about, but it's a fun concept to work with/around

At what point do you have the wing connection on your characters? It looks from the art like it's lower than the shoulder-blade which is where it's often put.

So. The wings are made of the mage's magical energy, rather than bone and feathers. They can appear and disappear, and an accomplished mage can generate them at will.
The wings are pretty solid, hence the need for altered clothing still stands, but they connect to the magical energy within the body, rather than to the body itself.
I positioned the wings between the shoulder blades and just below them because I felt it looked balanced (from a flight perspective) and aethetically pleasing.
