Tom Ford is an American designer who engaged himself not just in the creation of
collections of clothes, shoes, and accessories for men and women but also in perfumery
and, quite successfully, in cinematography. It was him as creative director of GUCCI who
got the brand out of stagnation in 1992 and inspired it with new life.
In 1996 Tom Ford
wins the Designer of the Year award and in 2001 Time Magazine calls him the Best
Fashion Designer. His own fashion house Tom Ford launched in 2005. From the very
start the brand utterly and completely runs on charisma and genius of its creator. He
never stops artistic research and experiments in creating unique sexual images, and his
taste is regarded to be iconic. According to Domenico De Sole, Tom Ford's partner, the
goal of the brand is to make Tom Ford «the first true luxury brand of the 21st century».
It's worth to mention that the designer's latest collections bear marks of its own history
— the nineties that were so significant to his career — tuxedos, slim-fit dresses, lustrous
tops and skirts, trenches and cardigans.
