Tom Ford was born in Austin, Texas, but spent most of his childhood in Santa Fe, New Mexico. 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. He was responsible for the design of all product lines, from clothing to perfumes, and for the Group’s corporate image, advertising campaigns and store design.
In April 2005, Ford announced the creation of the TOM FORD brand. In April 2007, his first directly owned flagship store opened in New York at 845 Madison Avenue and coincided with the much anticipated debut of the TOM FORD menswear and accessory collection. In September 2010, Ford presented his first namesake women’s collection during an intimate presentation in his Madison Avenue store. Presently, there are 30 freestanding stores and shop-in-shops in locations such as Milan, Tokyo, Las Vegas, Dubai, Zurich, New Delhi and Russia. Tom Ford, 2015.
