Quotable: Tom Ford on the whole no-runway situation

Tom Ford opened up to Grazia recently about why he eschewed spectacle-like runway shows in favour of hush-hush star-studded reveals.

“When you do a runway show you have to amp things up in a way so that they read from a great distance — so that they are designed for photography rather than for a consumer … And what I wanted to do was create clothes for real people.”

We do have to ask though: how exactly are Beyoncé or Lauren Hutton “real” people?
