Is Tom Ford set to design womenswear again? The designer hasn’t designed any womenswear since leaving Gucci in 2004. Rumours have been rife amongst fashion bloggers especially since Editor of French Vogue Carine Roitfeld was spotted wearing archive Tom Ford pieces.

If that wasn’t enough we hear the American designer’s company is seeking a $50 million investment, he said, ”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.” However if you’re hoping to snap up anything from the designer himself you’ll have a long wait ahead as Tom’s first collection won’t be unveiled until 2011! Tom said, “You know 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 .”
