TOM FORD: OWN Visionaires Documentary

This may be old news but I just stumbled upon this today. I’ve been a huge fan of Tom Ford since I first found out about who was behind the House of Gucci, back when I was in middle school. Back then I didn’t know or care about anything in ‘Fashion.’ I just liked watching the runway shows on FashionTV when they still had it on basic cable, when the Style Network was actually about ‘style.’ I didn’t care about the clothes, I just liked watching pretty people. When he had a model’s pubic hair shaped into a “G” for a Gucci ad campaign, I was hooked. I was like, ‘who is this man who had the balls to do this and put it in a magazine?’

Then I started to see that it was about making beautiful things. Making people beautiful and feel it on the inside as well as out. Making people want to be beautiful. He was my gateway into the dream world that is the world of Fashion. And it is a dream.

Thank you Tom Ford. For making me dream.

It’s about time there was a documentary about him. Apparently, this is the first time he’s allowed cameras to follow him. This is just before he unveiled his first collection under the Tom Ford brand.

Here’s the video:

I just loved how he says “Yves Saint Laurent,” with a French accent. Or even hearing Carine talk. She was so cute when she was like “Don’t say zat,” when Tom was critiquing Crystal Renn’s photo. I loved watching this. I could go on for days about it.

Now, someone do a documentary of Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy!
