Le couturier

Seul un artiste comme TOM FORD, jouant sans cesse avec la tradition et la modernité, l'élégance et la provocation, pouvait réinventer les codes de la parfumerie traditionnelle.

Son nom, TOM FORD, évoque la mode, la tendance, le luxe, la sophistication, le rétro-glamour, et l'élégance provocante. Véritable arbitre de la beauté et de l'esthétique, il fonde sa propre marque TOM FORD, dont il désire faire « la première marque de luxe du 21ème siècle ».
