Since September 12 is ongoing London Fashion Week. Today at 19.00 will be attending the big designer Tom Ford. We can only hope an excellent New Spring/Summer 2015 Collection full of glamour and sexy outfits!
Today Tom Ford will be among many other designers: Christopher Kane, Huishan Zhang, Burberry Prorsum, among others. Tomorrow is the last day of London Fashion Week and will bring many surprises. Many will be the Fashion Shows and the Cocktail Parties.
Tom Ford was born in Austin, Texas, but spent most of his childhood in Santa Fe, New Mexico. During his teens, Ford moved to New York and enrolled at New York University, initially attending courses in art history.
In 1990, Tom Ford moved to Milan to join Gucci as the company’s Womenswear Designer. In 1992, he became Design Director and in 1994 he was appointed Creative Director of Gucci.
In January 2000, following the acquisition of Yves Saint Laurent and YSL Beaute by the Gucci Group, Tom Ford assumed the position of Creative Director of Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche and YSL Beaute in addition to his then existing duties at Gucci. Ford worked with all creative teams at YSL to define the overall image and positioning of the YSL brand including all product categories.
In April 2005, Ford announced the creation of the TOM FORD brand and so was born the Tom Ford brand we know today.
