The first time i heard about tom ford was my first year in university when a mate of mine was testifying to her love for Gucci to me and that caught my attention so i decided to find out who this amazing designer is. 2 years later i got my first Tom Ford accessory (my infamous white rimmed shades) and i still love it like i bought it yesterday and was more informed about the man behind this fabulous designs Although this man does not have a degree in fashion (he has a degree in architecture), his talent as a designer is undeniable and he is responsible for making Gucci’s women’s ready to wear one of the most luxurious brands in the world. He was the creative director for Gucci and when the Gucci group acquired YSL he was the creative director for YSL as well from 1994 till he left Gucci in 2004 to start his own brand. He was the man responsible for skinny satin shirts, car finished metallic patent boots look, the halston style velvet hipsters that was a huge all over the world (i was really young then and i rocked that look too). Not until September this year, tomford hasn’t designed or showcase a womens wear collection since he left gucci and tickets for his show were like soo limited and exclusive it was like looking for a tree in a desert…not until now have i stumbled on pictures worth showing or blogging about from his collection. The show took place at his upper east side boutique where he served as the MC for this amazing show. He showcased 32 looks on 32 Superwomen (Daphne Guiness, Beyonce Knowles, Julliane Moore, Liya Kadebe amongst others) whom he specifically created each look for…the looks and clothes weren’t avante garde nor trendy, but from the pictures you could tell these pieces were made for confident, powerful and unique women who are trend setters, women who are known for their individuality in fashion and are not afraid to let their hair down when needed. TOM Fords 2011 spring summer collection has totally won me over and i can guarantee you all that one thing is for sure, sequin, and knee length body con dresses will be a huge hit next summer all thanks to Mr Tom Ford himself and personally i am not complaining cos a little glitter in a wardrobe hurts no one..xoxo
