Austin, TX born designer Tom Ford kicks off day 1 of New York Fashion Week SS19. It was a star-studded affair, both on and off the runway, as Ford debuted his spring/summer 2019 collection Wednesday night (September 5, 2018) at Manhattan's Park Avenue Armory. The Tom Ford models were the epitome of slick and chic as the designer presented both menswear and womenwear collections. Tom Ford gave a fresh perspective of SS19 in an array of nude-colored tones of subdued sophistication in neutral palettes. Both collections introduced a distinct contrast of hard and soft elements with animal prints (and reptile textures) featuring highlights of metallic, lilac, blush pinks, classic black, and sensual feeling whites in tailored looks.
