When you see these videos if you are a fashionista, designer or even into fashion just in general it showcases the desire of a man that was once at an all time low. But then motivated himself to get up, create his own brand his way, with his ideas and put those pieces of vision together to create the phenomenon that is Tom Ford.
The Visionaries: Inside the Creative Mind, which is set to broadcast on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN channel over the weekend.
Director Michael Bonfiglio, who had full access to Ford, documents the designers return to womenswear in September 2010 through to this past February where he opened his Los Angeles store.
The notoriously private designer also gave the documentary access to his studio in London, gave his opinions on the world around him, and explained why he based himself in the UK. “It’s amazing, England seems to turn out great designers,” he said.
