Highly esteemed women’s wear designer-turned-menswear designer-turned film director Tom Ford made a huge splash late last year when he announced that he’d once again be creating beautiful wares for the fairer sex. His return was marked by a secret show at a salon on Madison Avenue with only 100 of his closest friends in attendance. A video from the show was just released today, almost four months later. The event, shrouded by a veil of secrecy, came with a set of rules including:
- No full-look photos to run alongside fashion reviews.
- No complete run-of-show anywhere on the internet.
- No magazine coverage until January issues.
- No celebrities wearing the clothes until December.
