Internet spoke with @TomFord about every part from the results of COVID-19 on vogue to his life throughout lockdown.
⁣⁣
Here is a few of what Ford stated: ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
1. Fashion is not going anyplace. ⁣⁣
“I don’t think American fashion will go away at all. I think American fashion will transform. I think all of fashion will transform and adapt.”⁣⁣
⁣⁣
2. People over income. ⁣⁣
“We’re paying our staff. They are our number-one priority… Even if you’re an established brand and are lucky like we are, versus a medium-sized brand, when everything stops and not a penny comes in, and your third parties start canceling their orders because they’re going to go out of business, it’s a big deal.” ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
3. The enterprise of vogue is evolving. ⁣⁣
“Everyone has been complaining about the fashion shows — well, guess what? They may not exist in September. And pre-collections? Who knows. Even if I wanted to have a pre-collection, I probably can’t because my sample rooms are closed. We can’t have any fittings, we’re under a 30-day lockdown. Even if I made a collection and somehow figured out how to have it in a showroom or show it virtually somewhere in May, which doesn’t look likely, who’s going to buy it?” ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
4. The future is unsure. ⁣⁣
“Really no one can predict this. That’s what’s so crazy about it. Usually you can sit down with a business plan where you can plan out. No one can predict this. No one in the world can predict what’s going to happen.”⁣⁣
⁣⁣
5. We will survive.⁣⁣
“I think the most important thing is that this will go away, that this will pass, that we will survive… It’s hard to believe, I understand that, when you’re worried about how you’re going to pay your rent, how you’re going to pay your bills, it might sound callous. Because whatever industry you’re in, it doesn’t have to be fashion, it’s upending people’s lives.”⁣⁣
