Tom Ford

Born on the 27th of August in the year of 1961, in Austin, Texas, Tom Ford grew up to become a man of many special skills, some that he honed and some that he was inherently born with. The founder of one of the most iconic eponymous labels today, led quite an ordinary childhood like the rest of us, spending summers eating large meals at grandmas whilst lazing around the pool and interestingly visiting Ralph The Swimming Pig. Ford’s affair with design began at an early age,  in his own words said to The Biography “I don’t mean that I sat around at age 5 sketching clothes. But if my parents went out to dinner and left me alone, I would rearrange all the living room furniture before they came back home.”

A graduate in architecture from the Parsons School of Design, New York, Ford decided at the climax of his academic career to switch to the field of fashion. During his final year in Paris, the city of love made this designer find his one true love for clothes, accessories and all things fashion. He soon joined Gucci in 1990 and went on to becoming Creative director in 1994. A lesser-known fact is, under Ford’s creative umbrella, Gucci ‘s annual sales rose to $3 billion whilst he also took Yves Saint Laurent and revived it to reach inexplicable heights. A man of diverse talents, he resigned from Gucci in 2005 to launch his own label and directed Colin Firth in the film The Single and is also working on another thriller adapted from a novel.
