A year of retirement and playing golf (with wooden clubs and custom-made golf shoes, natch) didn’t sit well with him. He started his film company, and released A Single Man, to much acclaim. But fashion called to him. “I was shopping and couldn’t find anything I wanted,” he said. “At Gucci I just made myself things!” So Tom Ford the company was born–then came menswear, eyewear, beauty, and finally women’s RTW and a full beauty collection. While he claims to have three film projects in the works now, fashion is winning out. “The film industry is too slow. I would lose my mind,” he said. He will continue to show his collection to small groups of editors and plans to control the release of images as he’s done for the last year.
We could have listened to him for another hour, but it was not to be. However, the 92nd Street Y is hosting another talk that promises to be equally as exciting: “Fashion Icons with Fern Mallis: Michael Kors.”
Slated for June 6 at 8 PM, vente-privee will once again provide unparalleled access to this intimate conversation. Become a member and be on the lookout for these packages available soon on vente-privee, and you just might be rubbing VIP elbows with Mr. Kors himself.
