His Designs

With Gucci, he designed velvet hip-hugging jeans, skinny satin shirts, and metallic boots.

Inspired collection of feather–and–bead adorned denim jeans and form–revealing satin shirts in siren red and hot pink.

He replaced Gucci's stiff loafers with supple suede moccasins. The out–of–date wallets were replaced with bamboo–handled satin bags. Ford retooled Gucci's products, making them sleeker and sexier.

After leaving Gucci, Ford launched a line of menswear, beauty, eyewear and accessories in 2006.

In his own line, he introduced a ready-to-wear men's line (sleek and pinstriped suits)
