         Tom Ford is worn by all the Hollywood stars and appears in Hollywood movies like James Bond, Collateral Beauty, and Furious 7 to name a few. To become this popular Ford had to start from the beginning. Tom Ford was born in Austin, Texas but spent most of his childhood in Santa Fe, New Mexico. During his teens, Ford moved to New York and enrolled at New York University initially attending for art history. He later redirected his studies to concentrate on architecture at Parsons School of Design in New York and Paris, concluding his training at Parsons in New York. 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. This is where he was responsible for all product lines from clothing to perfumes and the corporate image, advertising campaigns and store design. In 2002, Ford was made Vice Chairman of the Management of Gucci Group and in 2004 he resigned from his post at Gucci Group following a buyout.

         In April 2005, Ford announced the creation of the Tom Ford brand. Ford was joined in this venture by former Gucci Group President and Chief Executive Officer Domenico De Sole who serves as chairman of the company. In the same year, he announced his partnership with Marcolin Group to produce and distribute optical frames and sunglasses. His eyewear collection has been hugely successful and rank in the Top 2 brands at specialty stores worldwide.
