In case you missed it, here is the full documentary on innovative designer and Oscar-nominated Film Director Tom Form from OWN Network’s Visionaries: Inside The Creative Mind series.
This documentary provides a little insight into the day-to-day life (and mind) of this fascinating man. As a fan of Tom Ford’s work (both of his line and the work he did with Gucci and YSL), I know that he’s a very mysterious and particular man (if you’ve seen/read any of the press coverage that he had for his beautifully cinematic film, A Single Man, you know what I mean), so I was surprised when I learned about this doc. Needless to say. I was NOT disappointed.
Being able to see inside the creative process (even just a smidgen) of some of the industry’s greats is, IMO, helpful for those pursuing a career in a fashion. There’s always something to take away from it, whether it’s learning how they got their start, tips on building your brand, to what it’s like to work inside a company of that caliber. Ford’s drive, attention to detail, and penchant for always being ahead of the (style) curve are why he’s so successful at what he does.
