Tom Ford launches a womenswear collection

Tom Ford invited a few selected editors and guests (such as Anna Wintour, Joe Zee, Nina Garcia, and Carine Roitfeld) to his Madison Avenue Boutique for a secret preview of his womenswear collection. Terry Richardson will be the photographer of the campaign and photos won't be released until January. Tom Ford explained that he only chose "women who inspired him" as his models.

The Spring 2011 Collection from their point of view:

Jim Shi: "[An] emphasis on form in the leopard pantsuits, suede trench, cobalt blue silk fringe column, deep olive shirt, leather biker jacket . . . a lot of silk georgette, 18kt gold, hand painted python, lots of fringe." 

Nina Garcia: "Clothes very specialized as well as accesories. 18k gold cuffs. Tailored suits over the moon red carpet and cocktail dresses." 

Joe Zee: "Silk fringe gown, crisp tuxedos in blk and white, leopard pantsuits, corsets under peekaboo gowns and lace kneeboots."  

Cathy Horyn: "[The collection was] the height of glamour — sharp pantsuits in black silk or a leopard pattern, gorgeous black evening clothes with sheer blouses, corsets and maybe a shrug in shredded tulle, impeccable details like hammered gold jewelry, stilettos with ankle ties and seamed black stockings."

Honestly... I can't wait!!!
