I like the direction that he is going with this statement.
Fashion has gone SO viral that it really has lost its elusiveness and fantasy-like quality over the past few years, that once made it so sought-after and praised. Bravo Mr. Ford, bravo.

Also, that red fringe dress in the second image is heavenly. Great post!
