The CFDA Fashion Awards are set for June 3 (tune in the following morning to watch the exclusive broadcast here, on Style.com), and to introduce the designers nominated for the 2013 Swarovski Awards, the crystal house has created a trio of films. Over the last few weeks, we’ve been debuting the shorts. Today, we release the third and final film, which introduces the nominees for Swarovski’s Award for Womenswear. Get better acquainted with Creatures of the Wind‘s Shane Gabier and Chris Peters, Cushnie et Ochs‘ Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs, and Suno‘s Erin Beatty and Max Osterweis, above.
As we enter into a month of fashion shows, we’ve asked some of this season’s biggest stars and most anticipated new talents to offer a sneak peek. Naturally, it’s a busy time for everyone—designers and fashion watchers alike—so we’re pioneering the split-second preview: tweet-length previews at 140 characters or less.

WHO: Creatures of the Wind, designed by Shane Gabier and Chris Peters
WHERE: New York, NY
WHEN: Thursday, February 7
WHAT: “Contemporary 60s-inspired sunglasses x Selima Optique, hand-painted fabrics x Aline Cautis, jewelry x Pamela Love, shoes x Tabitha Simmons.” —Gabier and Peters sent us a shot of their collaborative Selima Optique sunglasses, above.
For the past few seasons, lingerie designer Araks Yeramyan has brought on the likes of Richard Chai, Gia Coppola, Sally Singer, and Julie Gilhart to help shoot her lookbook. For the third installment, she handed out disposable cameras to yet another group of friends and supporters, including actress Michelle Williams, Alexa Chung, Tenzin Wild, Tracy Feith, and Creatures of the Wind’s Shane Gabier and Chris Peters.
“I make a wish list every season. I start with friends, or friends of friends, then add people I don’t know, but who I feel are in some way connected with the brand,” the designer explains of the process. “Some people I have no idea how to get to, but we try anyway—it’s fun.” Williams, however, was no shot in the dark. The Oscar-nominated actress has been a longtime Araks customer and, as Yeramyan admits, “She was the first person I placed on the list for this book.”
As fate would have it, Williams photographed her portion of the project at the Park Hyatt Tokyo—the same hotel that Lost in Translation was filmed at, in which star Scarlett Johansson wears Araks underthings. Here, Style.com has an exclusive first look at the final shot from Williams before it is officially unveiled along with the rest of the images at a private party in New York Wednesday night.
