Tom Ford at Mister Spex
A list of the world's most renowned and popular designers would not be complete without Tom Ford.
Born in 1961 in Austin, Texas, the son of Tom Ford Sr. and Shirley Burton discovered his path in life at young age. Having finished high school, he soon began studying design. From there, he went on to work for fashion designer Perry Ellis. During this time, he also met Marc Jacobs. Within two short years, Tom realized that he would have to leave the US if he was to become a world-class designer. He took the leap and moved to Europe where he found employment as prêt-à-porter designer for no less than Gucci, in 1990. After Gucci's acquisition of Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) in 1999, Tom was named creative director of both brands. In 2004, he decided to seek out new challenges and launched his own fashion brand: the eponymous Tom Ford label.
Tom Ford's prêt-à-porter label has captured the attention of the fashion world. Ever since the summer of 2007, his eyewear has been in constant, almost overwhelming demand. Not least due to 2008s 007: Quantum of Solace and the prominent place Tom Ford's fashion played in the film. Daniel Craig wore a Tom Ford suit and sunglasses. Along with increased attention, the brand received numerous fashion and style awards, including being inaugurated into the "International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame" in 2004, receiving the "Menswear Designer of the Year" award in 2008 and the "GQ Germany Man of the Year" award in 2009, as well as being nominated as the "Menswear Designer of the Year" in 2010. In 2005, Tom Ford launched his own film production company. In 2009, he directed the critically and audience acclaimed film, a Single Man. This film ensured both Tom Ford's status as a truly iconic brand and the renown of his eyewear designs
