He showed in London VERY last minute and EXTREMELY UNEXPECTREDLY and only those who were invited (as the show was of course invite only) were there including only selected monthly fashion magazine Editors. Anna Wintour, Anna Dello Russo, Emmanuelle Alt, Robbie Myers, and Glenda Bailey were among the lucky guests. These are just some of the Editors that no doubt were paid for to attend the fanciful secretive Tom Ford show but perhaps they didn’t need to get paid to go? Maybe the suspense and exclusivity was enough to lure the most high fashion snob out of his or her burrow? I know it certainly drums up a great deal of interest. In fact, here I am now writing about it now on this at this very moment.
Does Mr. Ford know what he is doing when he says NO PICTURES and NO CAMERAS at the door and literally takes everyone’s cell phones and camera’s. For his first show Grace Coddington was the only one who was prepared for the show because not only does she sketch every look as it walks down the runway – EVERY LOOK! ALWAYS! That’s like a million looks a season! But there she is, sketching away, and Grace at Tom Ford was no different. They may have taken the electronics but the sketching talent cannot ever be taken away. Isn’t that right Grace? I love you!
Anyway back to Tom!
So the collection was dark and full of jewel tones. Many elegant dresses and lots of sultry make-up. I have the video and I really want each and everyone of you to look at it and let me know what you think. Personally I love it and CANNOT wait to see it in the TOM FORD store when I head to Vegas in September. I will have photos of the merch from inside the store and of course the store itself… and Tom. Oh yeah he’ll pose with me you’ll see.
But for now leave your COMMENT VOMIT at the bottom and let me know how much you love the video, but careful it’s fast. So have your finger on the pause button and pick your favorite looks!
