Diversity Rules at Tom Ford Fall 2013

Tom Ford’s Fall 2013 show was a circus of full-on color, textures and prints. This was truly an over the top collection and not for the wallflower. I’m not sure I could get away with wearing these looks as styled for the runway, but there most definitely were some very hot pieces I could see toning down teamed with some more somber pieces. What really got me excited, besides the clothes, was the fresh diversity in this runway show. I’m not talking about one token black girl, either. Ford enlisted a bevy of black models, many of my faves, to strut their stuff in his Fall 2013 show. If only more designers would follow suit. It would be nice to finally get to a point where eight black models on the same runway isn’t a big surprise. YVL_4421.450x675
