Swarovski Award for Womenswear
Presented by Hailee Steinfeld & Douglas Booth
•Suno (Designers Max Osterweis & Erin Beatty)
•Creatures of the Wind (Designers Shane Gabier & Christopher Peters)
•Cushnie et Ochs (Designers Carlie Cushnie & Michelle Ochs)
Who we think will win: Creatures of the Wind
Why: All three nominees have been CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists, and both Suno and Creatures of the Wind were nominated for the same award last year. Creatures of the Wind has gotten one more accolade than the others, having been named as a runner-up for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund in 2011 and scoring a cool J.Crew collab. We’re putting money on Creatures of the Wind tonight. Working out of Chicago, away from the New York fashion scene, really sets it apart and brings out its unique vision.
