Tom Ford's big decision: London vs LA← Back
About 3 Years, 4 Months, 2 Weeks, 4 Days, 23 Hours ago.
You may have heard the news that fashion designer Tom Ford is leaving London and moving his catwalk show to Los Angeles…but fear not, it’s not all as bad as it seems.
The designer recently presented his sensual Spring/Summer 2015 collection at London Fashion Week, but instead of being a part of the UK schedule again next season, Tom Ford has decided to show his Autumn/Winter 2015 collection in LA.
The decision was prompted by a date clash: staying in London would have meant staging his show on the same night as the prestigious Oscar’s ceremony which takes place in February every year.
Since one of Tom Ford’s glamourous dresses and his luxury suits usually make an appearance on the Academy Awards’ red carpet (previously worn by likes of Jennifer Lawrence and Brad Pitt), the designer would have been unable to juggle both events. He will therefore be showing in LA on the 20th February 2015.
This however is only a temporary arrangement as Ford has stated that he would return to London the following season in order to present his Spring/Summer 2016 collection. Talking to WWD, the designer said “I love London, and I am not abandoning London Fashion Week. It’s a one time thing, it made sense for me, and I plan to be back in September.” We can all take a deep breath; Tom Ford isn’t leaving London forever.
