 ” I never look back, dahling. It distracts from the now!”

I sure did miss Tom Ford!  The music being played by Karen Elson <I always get asked>!   For this just released footage, you must have heard that Beyonce helped him out in his  womenswear fashion show, which was top-secret!   The cat’s out the bag!

For those who never heard of him, Tom Ford is an American fashion designer.  Known for his creative eye for menswear; dressing celebrities such as Johnny Depp, Pierce Bronsan and Brad Pitt to name just a few.  His designs are always present at the Academy Awards and many celebrity profile events.   

In the early 90’s Tom Ford started at Gucci; followed by YSL, to launch his own brand in 2004, TOM FORD.  He even has his own film production company, adding to his list of talents, film director.  Beauty fragrances with Estee Lauder, sunglasses; the list goes on and on!   He recently received a 2010 nomination for Menswear Designer of the Year – by the Council of Fashion Designers of America!

If you ever in NYC, his flagship store consider adding this stop to your checklist to see , the decor, mirrors, the marble floor, display of the suits….. it’s absolutely amazing!   This store is a gentleman’s store, everything required is at hand!   Take a peek; see his eye on detail!  You can get some great ideas and shop where affordable; because style is style!
