NEW YORK — Tom Ford has presented his women’s runway show at New York Fashion Week, a lighthearted ode to Los Angeles with lots of bright colours, bold prints, sequins and sparkles.

Ford recently moved to the California sunshine after a number of years in London, and he wanted his new collection to reflect that more casual vibe.

An example was a black sequined sweatshirt that said “Tom Ford Beverly Hills” — a play on Giorgio Beverly Hills, the famous old luxury boutique on Rodeo Drive.

Ford’s shows always draw a glitzy crowd, and Thursday’s crowd included actresses Julianne Moore, Elizabeth Banks, and Gina Gershon.

The upbeat soundtrack kicked off with two hits by the Pointers Sisters: “I’m So Excited” and “Jump (For My Love).”
