Tom Ford was born in Austin, Texas, but spent most of his childhood in Sante Fe, New Mexico. During his teens, Ford moved to New York and enrolled at New York University, initially attending courses in 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 of Gucci. He was responsible for the design of all product lines, from clothing to perfumes, and for the group’s corporate image, advertising campaigns and store design.
During Ford’s 10 years as Creative Director at Gucci and Gucci Group, sales increased from 230 million dollars in 1994 to almost 3 billion dollars in 2003, making Gucci one of the largest and most profitable luxury brands in the world.
