Ford was elected chairman of the CFDA on March 19 last year.
The CFDA – Council of Fashion Designers of America moved to California. According to reports from WWD, in fact, the first initiative of Tom Ford as chairman of the American trade association, which brings together designers of clothing and accessories, would be to move the headquarters from New York to Beverly Hills, in the area of Los Angeles. Steven Kolb, CFDA chief executive officer, would also be looking for accommodation in the City of Angels.
Ford was elected chairman of the CFDA on March 19 last year. The Texan designer takes up the baton from Diane von Furstenberg who left the summit of the American association after 13 years. Among the problems that the designer will have to face are the difficulties of the New York fashion week which, in recent seasons, has lost important names to the advantage of London, Paris and Los Angeles itself.
