The London Fashion Week S/S 2012 schedule is official, and Tom Ford is on it. You’ll recall that his first show took place under James Bond-ish secrecy in New York. He showed his second collection in London, but it was in a series of private appointments at which attendees had to sign privacy agreements. Critics were not welcome.
Now it seems that Ford is playing nice and doing a proper presentation, you know, like everyone else does. Who will be invited, and whether or not they’ll be “allowed” to share images or impressions of the show remains to be seen. Further adding to the confusion is the way Ford’s show is listed on the official London Fashion Week schedule.
It says “Tom Ford Women’s Presentation,” but presentations (vs. runway shows) are listed in blue italics on the schedule. Ford’s is in bold black. So does this mean that it will be a proper runway extravaganza? Now that would be the invite to snag in London.
