Creatures of the Wind

Creatures of The Wind was founded in 2008, by Shane Gabier and Christopher Peters. Both are graduates of The School of The Art Institute of Chicago, Department of Fashion Design. Creatures of The Wind has received critical acclaim from international press and media, and in 2011, Gabier and Peters were named runners-up in the CFDA /Vogue Fashion Fund.  In 2012, they were nominees for the CFDA’s Swarovski Award for Womenswear. The collection is driven by concept and narrative; inspiration is drawn from subcultures, mythological themes, and youth culture.  Artisanal detailing and unconventional pairing of fabrics are significant elements of the collection.  Creatures of The Wind regularly collaborate with artists and designers from other disciplines.  Past and current collaborators include Tabitha Simmons,  Aline Cautis, Pamela Love, Selima Optique,  and Matteah Baim. The collection is sold in directional retail outlets worldwide, including Ikram, Dover Street Market, Net-A-Porter, Isetan, Saks Fifth Avenue, D’NA, Beams, 10 Corso Como, and Ra.
