  • A fall/winter 2011 look from Creatures of the Wind
Shane Gabier and Christopher Peters, the duo behind local women's clothing line Creatures of the Wind, have stated they don't like calling themselves "Chicago designers," and it appears they have a point: In a short feature the September issue of Vogue on their ascent to fame and success (they are also finalists for the prestigious and extremely high-profile 2011 Council of Fashion Designers America (CFDA)/Vogue Fashion Fund award), they quote a buyer who told them, "When I heard you were from Chicago I almost walked out." Luckily the award panel didn't have such prejudices.
