History of Mens Tom Ford Shoes
Tom Ford initially found it hard to get a break in the world of fashion. Born in 1961 in Texas, Ford applied for positions at Versace, Fendi and Armani but was turned down by all of them. His fortunes changed when he was finally offered a level-entry job at Gucci and then quickly scaled the creative ladder by designing menswear ranges that became an instant hit. He was later appointed creative director at Gucci and is now largely credited with saving the giant fashion house from massive decline. Ford’s designs injected a new dynamic vibrancy into the Gucci clothing collections which struck a chord with contemporary audiences and increased sales from $230 million to $3 billion over ten years. Founding his own eponymous brand in 2006, Tom Ford found an even bigger global stage with his uber-cool lines of footwear and menswear, and has gone on to pick up a wealth of fashion industry awards.
