It’s Oscars Night!

Here’s an interesting article on the occasion of Oscars Night. (Actually it gets more interesting as you go along. You just have to get through the first bit….)
The quotation to think about comes toward the end:

So powerful is the potential for Oscar glory for fashion brands that Tom Ford withdrew from his London fashion week catwalk presentation last week to focus his attention on dressing the stars at the Dolby Theatre

“He was angry that the two events clashed,” says Catherine Hayward, fashion director at Esquire magazine. “So he made a strategic decision not to show his collection because he would also miss out on crucial press coverage – in media terms, nothing can compete with the Oscars now.”
