Tom Ford realizes The Limits of Control

Tom Ford held a super secret Spring 2011 Womenswear fashion show with models and celebrities such as Amber Valetta and Julianne Moore on the catwalk. Information and photographs were forbidden to the press, because Ford says that then, “They’re (the clothes) are in every magazine. The customer is bored with those clothes by the time they get to the store. They’re overexposed, you’re tired of them, they’ve lost their freshness, you see somebody wearing it and you say, “Oh, that’s that jacket that was in blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.” Or [a] customer doesn’t want to wear that jacket that was in blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. In addition, all of the fast-fashion companies that do a great job, by the way, knock everything off. So it’s everywhere all over the streets in three months and by the time you get it to the store, what’s the point?’ Presumably he also promised the photos to Vogue for December/Janaury’s issue. But some fashion journalists leaked a few tidbits about the night. Check out fashionologie.com for more details.
