Designer Tom Ford will be showing his second womenswearcollection at London Fashion Week this month.
A spokesman at Tom Ford confirmed the rumour, but said that instead of a show, there “will only be a small presentation for international monthly magazines.” Dates and location are yet to be revealed.
New York Fashion Week: Tom Ford’s fashion comeback
The much-missed Ford returned to womenswear after a six-year break, with a collection that drew raptures at New York Fashion Week last September. The riotous show featured long-time Ford devotees, including Julianne Moore, Lauren Hutton and Beyoncé, sashaying down the catwalk in his glamorous Seventies-inspired beaded gowns.

Ford’s presentation in London cements the city’s importance on the fashion week calendar, showing how it’s now a serious rival to New York, Paris and Milan. Its international press-pulling power was bolstered by Burberry’s decision to show in 2009. The luxury brand continues to show in the capital, attracting big-name stars like Emma Watson and Sarah Jessica Parker on the front row.
