Tom Ford Is Against Materialism in the Fashion World

He may have made millions dressing some of the most famous men and women in the world, but Tom Ford has spoken out against the fashion industry's overemphasis on "materialism".

In a conversation with sports star Tom Brady - husband of supermodel Gisele Bundchen - for VMan magazine, the designer admitted to finding certain aspects of the industry "strange", and implied that he's not always a huge fan of the often-fickle world of fashion.

"On the one hand, I want to go off and live in the desert with my dog and sculpt things out of adobe," he said. "But then on the other, I'm part of this industry that creates insecurity and focuses on materialism and things that aren't actually, for me, the most important things in life."

Speaking specifically about the annual Costume Institute Gala, Ford told of how it can be hard to see so many people "wearing a million dollars-worth of jewellery, and dressed in $30,000 dresses that are only good this season - because next season it's all going to look out of date".

"[It's] funny because it's this industry, of course, that makes people feel like they have to change," he adds.
