Tom Ford debuted his eponymous fashion house Spring/Summer 2016 Womenswear collection in a video and released in conjunction with Paris Fashion Week. The vide features Lady Gaga alongside with models including, Mica Arganaraz, Lexi Boling, Kayla Scott, Xiao Wen Ju, Valery Kaufman, Aymeline Valade, Lida Fox, Lucky Blue Smith, Alex Dunstan, David Agbodji and Tarun Nijjer.
“Having a runway show has become so much about the creation of imagery for online and social media and watching a filmed fashion show can be like watching a filmed play (which is never very satisfying).” Ford says. That’s why he decided to present his SS16 collection solely online and more excitingly, a cinematic way.
“I have always loved ‘soul train’ which used to be on TV in the 70’s; as it was as much about the clothes as the music. I asked Nile Rodgers to collaborate on a new version of one of his great hits from that time, “I want your love”, and worked with Gaga to record the vocals,” Ford says, in which their talents have completely diffused into the collection video. Watch Tom Ford high-octane SS16 collection movie, directed by Nick Knight and featured Lady Gaga below.
