Tom Ford Eyewear: The Story
April 2005 was the creation of the TOM FORD brand. Tom Ford was joined in this venture by former Gucci Group President and CEO Domenico De Sole who serves as Chairman of the company
Tom Ford is currently the head designer and creative director of all TOM FORD fashion collections(TOM FORD Menswear, TOM FORD Womenswear, TOM FORD Eyewear, and TOM FORD Beauty). Tom Ford was born August 27, 1961 in Austin Texas. Ford moved around the states from Texas to New Mexico and finally to New York at the age of 17 to take Art History at NYU. After a year Tom had enough of Art History and switched his vision to advertising and television commercials. While being involved in 12 simultaneous international advertising campaigns at once Tom decided to take interior design at Parsons. During this time Mr. Ford realized he was gay and started to take interest in the glamor of New York’s Studio 54. This would later play a major role in the influence of his designs throughout the years.
A year before graduation Ford went to Paris to intern at Chloe in the press office. His duties were to send clothing out to photo shoots but this quickly sparked his love of fashion. When Tom Ford graduated from Parsons with an architectural degree it should have been a design degree as the last year was spent studying fashion.
