Tom Ford left the fashion industry a while back and almost didn’t return, but not that many people know this story. Oprah Winfrey’s new network OWN will be telling this part of Ford’s life through the documentary ‘Visionaries: Inside the Creative Mind’ featuring Ford himself.
Premiering tomorrow night at 8 p.m., the film will follow the designer’s career, tracking it through the time where he left his position as creative director for Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent, and then consecutively his rise to the top.
“It was pretty gruelling; I was doing 16 collections a year and shuttling back and forth between [the two fashion houses] and thought ‘I’m not going to come back to this unless I can come back the way I want to,” he said.
Watch a trailer for the film below.
