Ex-Gucci creative designer Tom Ford is to be awarded the Andre Leon Talley Lifetime Achievement Award. The award is to be given to him by Andre Leon Talley, the editor-at-large for US Vogue, himself.
The Savannah College of Art and Design is honouring Ford on 20 May. The Georgia college is known for its annual, highly publicized fashion show. It previously awarded Diane von Furstenburg with an honorary degree and Zac Posen with the Andre Leon Talley New Look Award. WWD has revealed that the college plans on providing live webcast of the show in order to allow Ford’s fans a glimpse of the event.
