The Private World of Tom Ford SS11
Tom Ford has recently released the video from his private Spring/Summer 2011 Womenswear Collection months after the secret, intimate relaunch showcased in New York.
Tom Ford’s return to womenswear was prompted by his frustration with the fashion industry for failing to provide real clothes for real women.
Tom Ford explained that the inspiration for his collection concentrates on addressing the actual customer’s needs, focusing on individuality and enhancing one’s quality of life.
To emphasise the motivation behind the collection Ford used women that inspired him of different ages, heights and shapes to model his clothes.
Famous faces and models that walked for him included Lauren Hutton, Julianne Moore, Beyonce Knowles, Rita Wilson, Natalia Vodianova, Marisa Berenson, Liya Kebede, Rinko Kikuchi, Rachel Feinstein, Lisa Eisner, Amber Valletta, Karen Elson, Lakshmi Menon, Daria Werbowy, Karlie Kloss and Abbey Lee Kershaw.
