Style for me is someone who figures out who they are. What works on them. What they feel good in and develops that. Develops their character. And the outer expression of their character is what is style.


Dressing well is a form of good manners.


British men are peacocks. You see a lot more style on the streets here than you see anywhere else, on every level.


Style is very different from fashion. Once you find something that works, keep it.

Tom Ford Quotes on Fashion

Fashion is everything. Art, music, furniture design, graphic design, hair, makeup, architecture, the way cars look – all those things go together to make a moment in time, and that’s what excites me.


Real fashion change comes from real changes in real life. Everything else is just decoration.


People always ask me how I start a collection, and I tell them that I just look around. What am I tired of? What am I in the mood for? Real fashion change comes from real changes in real life. Everything else is just decoration.


Dressing well is a form of good manners.

Tom Ford Quotes about Writing

When you write a character and their dialogue, you can’t help imagining how you would be acting if you were them. You kind of have to relate to all of them. It’s the most personal thing I’ve ever done.


We have to have genius creative thoughts precisely four times a year and on exact dates. I actually write them on my calendar. I write, ‘Friday, Nov. 8. Three o’clock. Have a genius creative idea.’


I think some journalists and bloggers want their articles to be clever, and the way into that is by writing nasty things. I think our culture likes to be mean. I don’t just find this in fashion – I find it in the news. More and more, it is about ripping people apart.

Short Tom Ford Quotes about Team

Fashion is much more collaborative than one might think. You have to have an idea and vision and you have to communicate that vision to a team of people and you have to create an environment that allows those people to give the best that they can give.


Choose your team carefully. So much of your success is due to the people who you surround yourself with. Your friends, your family, and the people that you work with — they all play an important role in inspiring you and supporting you and giving you stability. These are the people in your life who will be honest with you.


I was not good at team sports, I have to say. I’m quite good at individual sports, but I was not good at team sports, so I wasn’t good at baseball and football.


One of my favorite teams of all time is Fran and Barry. I just thought Fran and Barry last season were just incredible and they just sort of went against all odds and were very successful.

Tom Ford Quotes about Water

I went to a fashion show, and this silver-haired guy was staring at me with these piercing water-blue eyes. It scared me because I absolutely saw and knew my entire future.


If I’m sending emails, and I get all wound up and stressed and don’t know what to do with myself for 20 minutes, I just go soak in hot water and lie there, thinking, ‘What should I do?’ So it’s meditative.


I like to relax and lie in the water. It is the way I calm myself down. But every time I walk past my bathroom, I go in and I put on some perfume. I use different perfumes for different moods. If I feel that I need to calm down, I put on certain fragrances that are more sensual. If I feel that I need to energize, I put on something else. Fragrance for me is so important.

Short Tom Ford Quotes on Art

We are actually starting to manipulate our bodies, because we can, into a shape. We are becoming our own art. But what happens for me is that it desexualizes everything. You know, you start to look more and more polished, more and more lacquered and you look like a beautiful car. Does anyone want to sleep with you? Does anyone want to touch you? Does anyone want to kiss you? Maybe not, because you’re too scary.


Fashion is everything. Art, music, furniture design, graphic design, hair, makeup, architecture, the way cars look – all those things go together to make a moment in time, and that’s what excites me.


I love to design. I am a commercial fashion designer. I always design jackets with two sleeves. I don’t design jackets with three sleeves, or the layers and layers come off like little dolls from Russia. Fashion for me is a creative endeavor, but it is not art for me.


Artists, like yourself, are born with a need to express that’s just innate.

Tom Ford Quotes on Culture

Fashion is very quick. It’s very disposable. It’s immediately – it tells you exactly where we are in our culture, especially women’s fashion.


I went through some tough times because if you’re used to having a voice in contemporary culture and all of sudden, you don’t have that voice, you don’t have that outlet. I didn’t appreciate that. I didn’t understand how important that was to me. And all of a sudden, after investing all this time and energy, I had no identity. I didn’t know who I was. I didn’t know what I had to say. I didn’t have a way to say it. It was very painful.


I love fashion. What I love is the ability to express yourself, to be able to make a product and shoot an ad campaign that tosses you out into the world and lets you have a voice in contemporary culture, iconography. I felt a little bit neutered not having that voice.


A beautiful woman in our culture, and I would like to say, you know, this was different in 1962, but it still exists today – I know a lot of these women -treats different in a different way; meaning that if you’re a beautiful woman, you’re incredibly powerful within our culture. The world operates differently for you. Then, at a moment in time, and it has nothing to do with you, it’s like the carpet is just ripped out from under you, and the way that you’ve operated in the world no longer works.

Tom Ford Quotes about Design

Advertising is, of course, important because advertise is the final design. It’s the last layer that speaks to the customer, that tells them what you have.


Fashion is everything. Art, music, furniture design, graphic design, hair, makeup, architecture, the way cars look – all those things go together to make a moment in time, and that’s what excites me.


I hate going out for lunch during a workday because it slows down my pace and ruins my rhythm. I prefer to eat at my desk. Actually, I wander around the design studio with a plate in my hand as I dine on, for example, salmon sashimi and a salad of tomatoes and mozzarella. I often have a bit of dark chocolate after lunch.


I don’t want to find myself designing for the press.

Tom Ford Quotes about Goals

My goal is to help women to become the best version of themselves.


Moving fashion used to be one of my chief goals. It’s not necessarily any more. Fashion needs to change when life changes. You only need to move fashion forward when there’s a reason to move fashion forward.


I am a perfectionist. This job is a total ego thing in a way. To be a designer and say, ‘This is the way they should dress; this is the way their homes should look; this is the way the world should be.’ But then, that’s the goal: world domination through style.

Tom Ford Quotes on Quality

It’s really about putting that sort of quality and beauty back into our life.


I want to make beautiful clothes for women and men who appreciate detail and quality. The product must be the best but this is almost secondary to the service the customer will receive.


I told myself that I would not come back to women’s fashion until I felt I had something new to say. I feel that fashion has become too serious and that the actual customer’s needs have not really been addressed. Fashion needs to make one happy. It is a luxury and should enhance one’s quality of life.

Tom Ford Quotes on Manners

Dressing effectively is a kind of excellent manners.


Dressing well is a form of good manners.


Dressing well is an expression of manners.


Dressing well is a kind of good manners, if you ask me. When you’re standing in a room, your effect is the same as a chair’s effect, or a sculpture’s. You’re part of someone’s view, you’re part of that world, and so you should dress well. I find it’s a show of respect to try to put on your best face and look as good as you can.

Tom Ford Quotes about Giving

I don’t believe in playing around much with suit cuts. I like a fairly classic shape that gives a man strong shoulders, a fitted waist, and long legs. Classic simplicity always works.


Choose your team carefully. So much of your success is due to the people who you surround yourself with. Your friends, your family, and the people that you work with — they all play an important role in inspiring you and supporting you and giving you stability. These are the people in your life who will be honest with you.


If you are creative, sometimes you give up a lot of things that other people have.


As a designer, design director or any creative person, you have to hire great people, support them and make them feel comfortable so they can contribute and give you their best.

Tom Ford Quotes about Environment

Fashion is much more collaborative than one might think. You have to have an idea and vision and you have to communicate that vision to a team of people and you have to create an environment that allows those people to give the best that they can give.


If my parents had discouraged me, I would have turned out very differently. They raised me in an open-minded, liberal environment.


I am actually extremely casual in certain environments. But one of the reasons I like living in London, I like the formality of it, as compared to the formality of America – or informality. I like putting on a suit. I like putting on a tie.

Short Tom Ford Quotes on Cars

My grandmother was probably the first person who I thought was beautiful. She was incredibly stylish, she had big hair, big cars. I was probably 3 years old, but she was like a cartoon character. She’d swoop into our lives with presents and boxes, and she always smelled great and looked great.


Fashion is everything. Art, music, furniture design, graphic design, hair, makeup, architecture, the way cars look – all those things go together to make a moment in time, and that’s what excites me.


We are actually starting to manipulate our bodies, because we can, into a shape. We are becoming our own art. But what happens for me is that it desexualizes everything. You know, you start to look more and more polished, more and more lacquered and you look like a beautiful car. Does anyone want to sleep with you? Does anyone want to touch you? Does anyone want to kiss you? Maybe not, because you’re too scary.


I am a spiritual person in an eastern religion kind of way. I learned that happiness for all of us is a switch that you flick in your brain. It doesn’t have anything to do with getting a new house, a new car, a new girlfriend, or a new pair of shoes. Our culture is very much about that; we are never happy with what we have today.

Tom Ford Quotes on Lying

If I’m sending emails, and I get all wound up and stressed and don’t know what to do with myself for 20 minutes, I just go soak in hot water and lie there, thinking, ‘What should I do?’ So it’s meditative.


I find I can get so much done between midnight and 4 a.m. Everything is quiet, no one is disturbing me, and if I go to bed then, I just lie awake thinking of ideas. They are very creative hours for me. One night a week I crash out, though.


I like to relax and lie in the water. It is the way I calm myself down. But every time I walk past my bathroom, I go in and I put on some perfume. I use different perfumes for different moods. If I feel that I need to calm down, I put on certain fragrances that are more sensual. If I feel that I need to energize, I put on something else. Fragrance for me is so important.

Tom Ford Quotes about Past

The idea of losing someone that you love could throw you into a situation where you could not see your future and you really would be living in the past.

If I feel that I need to calm down, I put on certain fragrances that are more sensual. If I feel that I need to energize, I put on something else. Fragrance for me is so important.


Anyone with a long-term partner, anyone with a long-term lover, if that lover dies, you could easily see yourself in a situation where you couldn’t see your future and you would be living entirely in the past. It’s about that loss.


For Fleur de Chine, I imagined the romantic and mysterious women from Asia’s cinematic past-from the ’30s femme fatale in a cheongsam and dark lipstick, to the’60s Hong Kong heroine of In the Mood for Love. I wanted to capture that fascinating, exquisite and slightly scandalous femininity.

Short Tom Ford Quotes on Film

While fashion is exciting because it changes all the time, it is also fleeting. Film, though, is forever. In a way therefore, film is the ultimate design project.


Both film and fashion are businesses where the audience doesn’t feel or see the work that goes on behind the scenes.


Fashion is harder than the film industry. You have to constantly be able to crank out hit after hit after hit on demand and on a very tight calendar. I’ve come back, I’ve lost it, I’ve come back again. It’s really as good as your last collection.


A film should be somewhat personal. I think that whatever you create you have to be true to yourself and create something that feels right to you.

Tom Ford Quotes about sexuality

First of all, I love women. But I lust after beautiful women in the way that I lust after a beautiful piece of sculpture – this will probably get me in trouble – or a beautiful car. I believe everyone’s on a sliding scale of sexuality. There are moments where I am sexually attracted to women. But it doesn’t overpower my first impulse; my lust for them is the same as my lust for beauty in all things.


My career in fashion has been very much about sexuality and sex, and I think a lot of people think that’s all I can do and what I am all about.


Right now everything is pumped up. Cars look like someone took an air pump and pumped them up. They look engorged. Lips pumped up, breasts pumped up, everything is pumped up. And it’s also kind of off-putting. It’s sexual but in such a hard way that it’s, for me, not sexual at all. Whereas the 1970s, breasts were smaller. People were not wearing bras. Farrah Fawcett’s sexuality and sensuality was a very touchable sexuality. She was kissable. She was friendly.

Short Tom Ford Quotes about Heels

Just like girls need to learn to be comfortable in heels before they go out in them for the first time, a man should try wearing a suit throughout a normal day. I do most things in a suit-and sometimes even in a tuxedo-and so I’m really comfortable in one.


It’s hard not to be sexy in a pair of high heels.


If you are a designer, sometimes it is better not to delegate, because someone pays money for something that you designed, so it should be exactly the way you want it, exactly the way you would have chosen it. People call me a control freak, and I say, “Well, my name is on the shoe.” It means the heel needs to be the way I want it and not the way somebody else wants it, and the toe needs to be exactly the way I want it, and the fabric and the material have to be exactly the way I want it. It is not a democracy – it is a dictatorship.

Tom Ford Quotes Fashion is everything

Fashion is everything. Art, music, furniture design, graphic design, hair, makeup, architecture, the way cars look – all those things go together to make a moment in time, and that’s what excites me.

Tom Ford Quotes on Architecture

When I was young, I wanted to be a movie star. But I realized that you have no control being an actor. So I went to architecture school in NYC, because I was crazy about buildings. Then I began to realize that I got more excited about Vogue coming out each month than I was about my projects.


Fashion is everything. Art, music, furniture design, graphic design, hair, makeup, architecture, the way cars look – all those things go together to make a moment in time, and that’s what excites me.


Other Quotes You May Like:


I realized that the way I approached architecture was with a somewhat fashion brain. That didn’t get me very good marks in school, because everyone thought fashion was lightweight. In architecture they say, “Well, why is the door pink? Where does it go? What does the pink mean? What does it symbolize? All the other doors are beige, why is that one pink?” I was like, “Well, it’s pink because it’s pretty.”


Bill Sofield has the ability to understand the architecture of a space and how to utilize it in the most beautiful way. He can create completely different styles for his clients based on who they are and what their taste is. Our efforts have always been collaborative, and I value what he brings to the table architecturally and aesthetically.
