Tom Ford Net Worth: Tom Ford is an American fashion designer and film director who has a net worth of $70 million. Tom Ford has earned his net worth as creative director of Gucci and YSL, and creator of the Tom Ford brand in fashion, as well as the film director and producer of "The Single Man." Born Thomas Carlyle Ford on August 27, 1961, in Austin, Texas, he rose to international stardom with his turnaround of the Gucci fashion house and the creation of his own high-end Tom Ford label. This happened before he made his breakthrough as a film director with the Oscar-nominated drama, A Single Man, in 2009. The son of realtors Tom Ford and Shirley Burton, he is himself a graduate of architecture at Parsons The New School for Design. However, during his studies in New York he realized 2 things: that he bears a strong fascination for fashion and that he is gay. Thus, he soon started to work as a design assistant for the American designer Cathy Hardwick. Two years later, he left as he was hired by another sound name in fashion, Perry Ellis. But his tenure there didn't last long since he wanted to find a job in the European fashion industry. In 1990, he joined Gucci as its chief women's ready-to-wear designer. While there, he got a chance to showcase his talent, and even replaced his the designer director who resigned in 1992. Then, he went on to lead the brand's store, advertising, image, ready to wear designs and fragrances, as well as eventually became the brand's Creative Director. But not only he single-handedly saved the brand, Tom also created his own fashion label. Two years after leaving Gucci in 2004, he introduced the world with his own brand Tom Ford, today responsible for the fancy look of numerous celebs. Furthermore, Ford made it into the show biz as well, starring in lots of commercials, being the boss of his own production company and the director of the critically acclaimed movie, A Single Man. However, his fans don't have to fear that Ford's creativity will ever cease, since as he once claimed, he is his own muse. When it comes to his private life, Tom is currently in a relationship with his long time partner Richard Buckley. Reportedly, the couple has a son named Alexander John Buckley Ford.
