Ooh Tom Stop It ... Tom Ford Fall 2013 RTW

I'm very excited about the Tom Ford show because ... well he's my favorite American designer and this will be his first runway show since he has founded his own label. For his grand re-entrance he had to do it big, so he booked the Lancaster House, a historic former home of English aristocrats. His label for the collection was "Cross Cultural Multi Ethnic". I loved all the multi-colored sequined hoodies and pencil skirts, bomber jackets, 1968 Batman kaw-pow motifs, leopard-spotted parkas and flower embroidered thigh high boots. It was perfection and he mos def made a statement. “When you start thinking about clothes that are going to walk down a runway and be photographed, and all those images go out into the world, you think very differently about the clothes,” Ford said. “They have to be amped up.”
