There are few designers that command as much attention as Tom Ford, and rightly so. The tailor, designer, filmmaker, and overall icon sat down with The Telegraph in London to share his insight on fashion, beauty, his films, and the unnecessary circus that is fashion week. Here are a few of his choice words:
On next week's show: "I'm not Doing The Fashion System. I don't do shows. I don't have reviews. I'm not putting the clothes on every celebrity so that by the time they reach the store the customers are sick of seeing them".
On beauty: "Have you noticed how much make-up girls are wearing these days? It's because it's cheaper than buying clothes. I love beauty products. At Gucci I'd spend days working with a make-up artist getting the show to look right. I was never drawn to walking in women's shoes that's maybe why some of them hurt. I never had a desire to wear the clothes. I'm probably the only man in England who doesn't want to dress in drag. But make-up? That I'm serious about."
On his next film: "I would lose my mind if I just did films and my next film [which he has written although he won't divulge more, apparently it's comic] is ready to go. But even if I cast it now, it would be another 18 months before we were on set. I enjoy the speed of fashion. I love doing different things and I think I still have something valid to say in fashion."
