Why is Tom Ford showing in LA during New York Fashion Week?
Tom Ford is skipping out on New York Fashion Week in February and will instead show in LA. “Someone asked me the other day how I could justify showing in LA as I am now the Chairman of the CFDA, and I reminded them that CFDA stood for the Council of Fashion Designers of America and not the Council of Fashion Designers of New York,” Ford said in a statement. But Ford has a specific reason for showing on the other side of the country next season: the Oscars. The designer wants to be on-hand for his celebrity clients, and this year’s ceremony will take place February 9 — right in the middle of fashion week.

Pinterest Trends is currently in beta, but will roll out to the public in the next few weeks.
