Instead of holding an ultrasecret presentation with confidentiality waivers and guards to confiscate cell phones at the door, Tom Ford is allowing his spring 2012 womenswear show to be featured on something so lowly and common as the British Fashion Council's provisional show schedule for London Fashion Week. It's sandwiched oh-so-normally between the Fred Butler and Matthew Williamson shows on Sunday, September 18 at 6 p.m. Next thing you know he'll be inviting photographers to take pictures — imagine!
