Tom Ford is upping the ante for his fashion shows once again. After a Fall presentation in Los Angeles last season, the maverick designer is reimagining the traditional runway setting completely, with a video starring his many model muses.
The designer has tapped Lady Gaga to appear in the Tom Ford Spring 2016 film, a runway video of the collection, which was shot in Los Angeles by Nick Knight with Benoit Delhomme as the director of photography.
“Instead of having a traditional show this season, I wanted to think about how to present a collection in a cinematic way that was designer from its incetption to be presented online,” sad Ford. “I have always loved ‘Soul Train’ which used to be on TV in the 70’s.”
The designer 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.
The film also features models Aymeline Valade, Xiao Wen Ju, Mica Arganaraz, Lexi Boling, and Valery Kaufman in Ford’s latest creations.
