Tom Ford's new womenswear collection

It's not new for many that Tom Ford already launched his new womenswear collection, the one that everyone has been waiting for. It's been on every magazine, from Harper's Bazaar to Vogue Korea. And I really think that he made quite a comeback.

Tom Ford presented a collection really true to himself, with his own signature sensuality, amazing dresses, best frabric choices, sexy silhouettes and everything else that made him a total success back when he was in Yves Saint Laurent and Gucci as creative director.

For his "debut" show, he chose great female icons to walk down the runway, starting with BeyoncĂ©, who opened the show. Choosing women from all ages, from early 20's to almost 70, to show that her clothes fit all. "There used to be a look for women who were older. You didn’t wear certain things, you did your hair a certain way – but today, 70-year-old women who keep themselves together want to look just like their 25 (year-old) counterparts,’ says Ford.

As a target, he chose intelligent women, with a live, kids, from different ages, inspirational and also iconic and this comes to light, when you see the pieces he presented. He made a great statement for an interview: "The women (in my show) don’t change their look from day to day. They have figured out who they are – that’s what makes you iconic, by the way. Figure out who you are, figure out what you like, figure out what you look good in."

His designs have an "elegant sophistication", as he said, he's now a more mature designer who thinks in his clients and also in selling. Of course, price tags on his clothes are a little bit higher, from $3800 for a jacket to $35000 for a dress. But at the end, the price you pay, worth it. Hand-painted silk, feathers, lace, crocodile skin and mother of pearl sequins are a few of the materials you could find in his gorgeous collection.

Someday I'll have one of his dresses, in the mean time I'll satisfy myself by watching over and over again pictures from the editorial and from his fashion show.
