Creatures of the Wind Fall 2012 Runway Show Draws Major Publications’ Attention

"The definition of eclectic—never repetitive yet, as a whole, everything made sense,” summarizes the Women's Wear Daily (circ. 56,562) review of faculty member Shane Gabier’s (Fashion, SAIC 1995-98) and fellow alumnus Christopher Peters’ (BFA 2010) Creatures of the Wind Fall 2012 runway show at New York Fashion Week on February 9. The review, which called the collection a "combination of offbeat whimsy and fine-tuned chic,” was part of an energetic outpouring of coverage by the fashion industry’s most renowned publications. New York Times fashion blog On the Runway posted a slideshow with 22 looks alongside its commentary on a standing-room-only crowd; T Magazine (circ. 1,700,000) focused on the show's captivating finale—a "collection-defining" tiered dress for which they used 25 yards of mint chiffon; ELLE (circ. 1,145,464) also praised the designers’ first foray into evening wear; Vogue (circ. 1,264,034) enthusiastically commended the designers for being the "the mood-brightening spots on New York’s fashion calendar;" Style.com applauded their "unique, offbeat vision.” London's influential style magazine Dazed and Confused (circ. 60,000) and Harper's Bazaar (circ. 714,249) also featured coverage of the show.
