“I can’t tell you for sure. I can tell you I’m thinking about it….It’s two to three years away. If i were to do women’s wear tomorrow, I’d have to have an atelier and a sewing room to compete at the level I would want to compete at. After that, I’d need an entire separate design team. I would need new offices to house them. I would need new stores. Just logistically and financially, I could not take it on right now either way, and the women’s fashion world is so cruel and so brutal that there is no room for error. No one cuts you any slack—ever. It would be too risky for me to even attempt it until I could do it the right way.”
Tom Ford speaking to Time magazine.
