For all the sensual and sexy girls who are not afraid to put it out there, here is just a little glimpse of a divine decadence that this magnificent, hard-working designer has created.
Born and raised in America, moving from Texas to New Mexico and later to New York, Tom Ford was frequently changing schools and interests until finally he began studying interior architecture at the famous Parsons The New School for Design. He was a regular visitor of the Studio 54 club, which later had an influence on his design. After living in Paris and interning for Chloé, he realized that his biggest interest was in fashion.
Tom Ford led Gucci from bankruptcy to estimated worth of $10 billion. He was the creative director of Gucci and YSL until the disagreement over artistic control of the companies. Later, he founded his own Tom Ford brand.
Oozing with sex appeal and power, Tom Ford’s clothes had a sixties and seventies edge. He creates cutting-edge looks and is a master in advertising them in the most impacting and unlikely way. “The now infamous Tom Ford look—what he later called “sexy, sensual, f*ck-me clothes,” part modish tomboy, part Bardot-era sex kitten—oozed power and prestige“, is the way Vogue describes it. He has even directed the film A Single Man which has that Tom Ford taste of sensuality.
For the Autumn 2013, Tom Ford released a collection full of floral and tribal prints and inspired by comic book prints. For the S/S14 he shows that astonishing sexy look by opening the show with the most perfect camel coloured belted blazer followed by spidery lace and broken down mirrors.
