Celebrated designer Tom Ford is best known for turning Gucci into worth billions of dollars; before leaving the business to launch his own highly successful brand. Ford became creative director at Gucci in 1994. He brought a sexiness and glamour to the brand, bringing on photographer Mario Testino and stylist Carine Roitfeld to shoot campaigns. He and Gucci’s then-president, Domenico de Sole, took the company public and — in a bid to avoid a takeover by LVMH — joined forces with PPR (now Kering). By 2004, Gucci was valued at over $10 billion.
He eventually launched his own fashion house, which has become one of the most recognised brands in the world. In addition to his fashion empire, Tom Ford understood the power of beauty, Tom Ford soon developed his own signature makeup and skincare line.
We understand the importance of mentoring and these Masterclasses instil confidence in our graduates, as well as allowing them to continue to learn and network post studying. We believe they are imperative to our students’ success and their ability to go on and find jobs which they love.
