Fashion king Tom Ford declares London more stylish than Paris
TOM FORD HAS declared London more stylish than Paris.
Speaking at yesterday’s Fashion Fringe show during London Fashion Week, the former Gucci designer said: ‘Quite honestly in terms of French culture, if you think about what the French are producing in terms of fashion or architects or painters or musicians, they are quite far behind what the British are producing, and yet when you think of fashion, you think of Paris.’
However, he says that just because Paris is seen as a ‘global showcase’ for fashion ‘it isn’t necessarily where talent is coming from’.
‘When you think of Paris you think of Karl Lagerfeld, who is not French,’ he added, ‘and you think of Marc Jacobs, who’s not French, and Stefano Pilati who’s Italian.’
