Tom Ford announces that he will debut Autumn/Winter 2015 in L.A.
A one-off for the showman
We're not even through with the Spring/Summer 15 shows as yet, but Tom Ford has already launched impressive plans for his next season, following his recent display in London. Scheduled to take place in Los Angeles on February 20, AW15's location will be a one-off event, and he plans to return to London Fashion Week next September.
Ford has explained his decision to show in L.A. - partly due to a scheduling conflict with the Oscars which takes place on the 22nd, which is smack in the middle of London Fashion Week. Remaining in London would have meant showing the collection on the Monday after the awards, which no one wants to do.
"I love London, and I am not abandoning London Fashion Week," the designer said. "It's a one time thing, it made sense for me, and I plan to be back in September." Ford said he would also continue to show his men's collections in London.
