Former Gucci designer, Tom Ford, has turned his talents to writing. He has penned the memoirs of his time designing for Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent. The finished product was presented at a party last week in Dallas. Ford’s book is big and bold, like the man himself. He admitted that writing “Tom Ford” has helped him work through his time at Gucci, where he spent 14 years of his life.

Ford will be directing films, and has his own film production office in Los Angeles. However, having spent six months away from the fashion world, he has revised his earlier decision about designing clothes. He no longer rules out the possibility of returning to a career in fashion.
