Tom Ford has recruited staff for his highly-anticipated womenswear line.

The designer – who has yet to confirm when the collection will be launched - has hired Caroline Tixier from Givenchy and Pablo Coppola at Alexander McQueen to head up the range, with sources predicting it will be ready late
next year.

Tixier is a women’s ready-to-wear designer at Givenchy while Coppola has
made his name as an accessories designer at Alexander McQueen.

Ford confirmed his intentions to move back toward womenswear last year,
saying in October: “Financing is extremely expensive right now, so if we
find financing in the right situation we’ll be able to start a women’s
collection soon. If we don’t, we may have to wait a while.”

He warned, however, the project would take over a year to complete, adding:
“It will take me 18 months when I start, because I have to hire the team,
find the factories, put everything together and then get the stores ready so
there’s a place for these clothes.”
