    i thought it was obvious that tom ford expected the world out of the people he surrounded himself with since he himself had so little training/expertise. (sort of the george dubya approach of surrounding yourself with good people) :unsure:

    great to have kit's voice back in the mix...

    yeah...i think it's becoming more and more clear that ford had some people working with him who actually designed the collections...he became more of a PR person and company figurehead...then he would take credit for everyone else's hard work...it's true that he's not the only one to do this however...i just think he was even less involved than most...

    i can see it in the inconsistency in some of the collections...i still like the early days best...

    you can say that again soft ;)

    well, we are not missing the point here are we?
    what my cat does not know, is that
    and this is what makes the whole difference, attitude and manners...

    the fact that he was not designing any collections is certainly no news :p

    i think miuccia would be the first to admit that she expects a lot out of her design team...i strain to think of a big-name designer who does not. :flower:

    what's funny to me is that when looking at mr. baileys personal style, he almost looks like a tom ford impersonator...

    mmm...mikeijames...maybe you're just talking about the menswear...but in the womenswear i really don't see a comparison...and if anything...tom ford was just taqking credit for bailey's ideas when he worked at gucci...so it would be the other way around...wouldn't it...

    lena...come on...did anyone really think that Miss Ford...DIVA that she is...would be anything but a b*tch to her employees...the queen bee often stings the drones who bring her food to survive ...you know... ;)

    but she IS charming when she buzzes about...isn't she... :p ;)

    erhhh, i dont find bitchy people charming ...
    and i dont think it's a rule to be bitchy with your design team
    when you reach TF status, to be honest i find it quite a stupid policy
    for people to be arrogant with their team, its very bad news in the market...

    ps: reasonably demanding is not the same as being difficult or impossible :p
