Tom Ford, American fashion designer, film director, screenwriter, and film producer. He launched his eponymous luxury brand in 2006, having previously served as the Creative Director at luxury fashion houses Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent. Ford also directed the Academy Award-nominated films A Single Man (2009) and Nocturnal Animals (2016).
Tom Ford just presented his new SS19 Collection during NYFW. “I became a designer,” he wrote, “because I wanted to make men and women feel more beautiful and to empower them with a feeling of confidence. A feeling of knowing that they looked their best and could then present their best selves to the world. I wanted to make clothes that were flattering. That make one look taller and slimmer and more beautiful or more handsome.” For this collection there were skirtsuits cinched with corsets, deconstructed Le Smokings, men’s jackets on women cut in silk satin, lace slips peeking from the hem of ruched skirts to the knee, and 1970s-by-way-of-the-’90s caped jersey gowns. All of this came in black, white, skin-tone hues, and palest lilac. His style elegant, chic, extreme makes him: The King of Fashion.
