Tom Ford started his career in 1986, when he joined the creative staff of the American famous designer Cathy Hardwick. But he didn't make a name for himself in the business until he relocated to Europe in 1990 and landed a position with a big company. He was hired by a prestigious company as chief women's ready-to-wear designer. A few years passed, and in 1992, he moved up the corporate ladder of the fashion world and once again took on the role of Design Director.
After leaving that fashion House, Tom Ford and Domenico de Sole set up a new company called just "Tom Ford". We saw the sunglasses by the end of 2005. For his eyewear collection he made an agreement with the Marcolin Group in Italy. Starting from Madison Ave, Manhattan, Mr. Ford plans to open stores in Milan, London, Los Angeles and Tokyo over the next three to four years.
