From the Publisher
Tom Ford has become one of fashion''s great icons. In the past
decade, he transformed Gucci from a moribund accessories label into
one of the sexiest fashion brands in the world. His designs have
increased sales at Gucci tenfold and have helped build the Gucci
brand into the luxury goods conglomerate that it is today. Ford
brought a hard-edged style synonymous with 21st century glamour to
his clothes, and Hollywood sat up and took note.
This book is a complete catalogue of Ford''s design work for both
Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent from 1994 to 2004. It chronicles not
only Ford''s clothing and accessories designs for both houses, but
also explores Ford''s grand vision for the complete design of a
brand, including architecture, store design, and advertising.
Tom Ford features more than 200 photographs by Richard Avedon,
Mario Testino, Steven Meisel, Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts, Terry
Richardson, Craig McDean, Todd Eberle, and numerous other
photographers including many previously unpublished images.
Published to coincide with his departure from Gucci, this book has
been created with Ford''s full cooperation and every page reflects
his exceptional taste. It is Ford''s testament to a career of
singular moments reinventing the boundaries of style and sensuality
