In September, Tom Ford announced that instead of a physical runway show, he was planning "something different and special" to present his spring 2016 collection. And on Friday during Paris Fashion Week, he made good on his promise, releasing a high energy disco music video starring Lady Gaga and a whole bunch of models dancing to the music of Nile Rodgers.
"Having a runway show has become so much about the creation of imagery for online and social media and watching a filmed fashion show can be like watching a filmed play [which is never very satisfying]," said Ford in a statement. "It was a great deal of fun to do and I think that the video captures the spirit of the collection in a way that a filmed traditional show would not have." Ford is slated to go into production on his second feature film this fall.
The spring 2016 video was filmed in Los Angeles and features Lady Gaga with models Mica Arganaraz, Lexi Boling, Kayla Scott, Xiao Wen Ju, Valery Kaufman, Aymeline Valade, Lida Fox, Lucky Blue Smith, Alex Dunstan, David Agbodji and Tarun Nijjer. Lady Gaga recorded vocals for the new version of "I Want Your Love," with Nile Rodgers, who originally released the song with the band Chic in 1978. The video was directed by Nick Knight and Benoit Delhomme served as the director of photography.
