Sonny Shoots: Erin Fetherston + Creatures of the Wind
When it comes to catching models fresh off the runway, no better photographer can be found than our own Sonny Vandevelde. For the first day of NYFW, Sonny gave us backstage glimpses of two of the season’s most characteristically vibrant designers—Erin Fetherston and Creatures of the Wind. Ever since her first collection in 2005, Fetherston’s designs have frequently been described as ‘whimsical’ and ‘romantic,’ adjectives that certainly serve this year’s offerings, which range from Boho sun dresses to high-waisted chambray pants that have us dreaming of a summer at Grey Gardens. Creatures of the Wind on the other hand, spun vastly away from their familiar territory. While the brand had previously established themselves with a fiercely punk aesthetic, this year the designers went full glam-new-wave, featuring pieces like bright magenta blazers, racing jacket zip ups, and literal star-studded pants providing looks for a band that only exists in our dreams. Stay tuned for which shows Sonny catches throughout the rest of NYFW!
