The British Fashion Council just released the London fashion week schedule for the fall 2013 shows this February, and there's an exciting name back on it: Tom Ford!
So is Ford really going to stage a proper runway show at LFW?
The first-ever stand-alone menswear shows are happening in London this week, and no dapper guys' gathering is complete without an appearance by Tom Ford. And according to a tweet by Derek Blasberg, he's not afraid to offer royalty some grooming advice:
Just met Prince Charles. Charming, jolly fellow. Tom Ford suggested (to him, mind you) a new cuticle cream. Its official: I'm a royalist now
How exactly did that happen? Ford shook the Prince's hand, noted his cuticles were dry, then tactfully suggested the cream? Dying here. Anyway, the designer sat down with Grazia's style director Paula Reed in London for a chat, and as usual, he was pretty charming and open. Despite having just heard his entire life story when he sparred with Fern Mallis a few weeks ago, we still learned some more about his career and as usual, we love how entertaining he is. From Americans' crappy style to the power of tight pants, Tom Ford keeps it real. Click through to read the highlights and here to read the whole thing.
Tom Ford once again showed his collection to editors, press, and buyers privately in London last week, invoking his usual strict no photos policy. But what's this? Has Tom Ford changed his mind about the internet? Because he just released a few teaser images way earlier than he has in previous seasons.
