After two years of intimate and incredibly exclusive presentations for his eponymous line, Tom Ford is finally staging his first “real” runway show, which will take place during London Fashion Week. Ford cites the expansion of his brand as cause for the shift, with his gorgeous wares now being sold in 100 stores worldwide. He will be a welcome addition to a schedule that can sometimes seem lacking in comparison with the massive brands showcasing in New York, Paris, and Milan. Ford joins the ranks of Matthew Williamson, Vivienne Westwood, Christopher Kane, and Burberry Prorsum. February can’t come soon enough.
