LONDON (AFP) - United States (US) designer Tom Ford paid tribute to Jay-Z at his London Fashion Week show on Monday by including a sequinned version of the rapper's TOM FORD 61 football jersey in his collection of evening wear.

Amid an elegant, luxurious range of fur coats and velvet and cashmere dresses, Ford included two glittering shift dresses, one in black and the other in a rusty orange.

Worn with stiletto boots and a leather trim, they both bore the words TOM FORD 61 and MOLLY, crossed out, on the front and back in white sequins.

It was a knock-off of the jersey Jay-Z has worn while performing his tribute song Tom Ford, which references the designer's birth year, 1961, and the drug-related lyrics.
