WWD spoke with @TomFord about every part from the results of COVID-19 on style to his life throughout lockdown.
Right here is a few of what Ford mentioned: ⁣⁣
1. Style is not going anyplace. ⁣⁣
“I don’t assume American style will go away in any respect. I feel American style will remodel. I feel all of style will remodel and adapt.”⁣⁣
2. Folks over earnings. ⁣⁣
“We’re paying our workers. They’re our number-one precedence… Even in case you’re a longtime model and are fortunate like we’re, versus a medium-sized model, when every part stops and never a penny is available in, and your third events begin canceling their orders as a result of they’re going to exit of enterprise, it’s an enormous deal.” ⁣⁣
3. The enterprise of style is evolving. ⁣⁣
“Everybody has been complaining in regards to the style exhibits — effectively, guess what? They could not exist in September. And pre-collections? Who is aware of. Even when I wished to have a pre-collection, I most likely can’t as a result of my pattern rooms are closed. We are able to’t have any fittings, we’re beneath a 30-day lockdown. Even when I made a group and someway found out how you can have it in a showroom or present it just about someplace in Might, which doesn’t look probably, who’s going to purchase it?” ⁣⁣
4. The longer term is unsure. ⁣⁣
“Actually nobody can predict this. That’s what’s so loopy about it. Often you’ll be able to sit down with a marketing strategy the place you’ll be able to plan out. Nobody can predict this. Nobody on this planet can predict what’s going to occur.”⁣⁣
5. We are going to survive.⁣⁣
“I feel an important factor is that this can go away, that this can move, that we are going to survive… It’s onerous to imagine, I perceive that, while you’re fearful about the way you’re going to pay your lease, the way you’re going to pay your payments, it would sound callous. As a result of no matter business you’re in, it doesn’t need to be style, it’s upending folks’s lives.”⁣⁣
