    What is Tom Ford doing since he left Gucci? Does he still design for Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche?

    Does Yves Saint Laurent do any couture designing or is he completely retired now? Does anyone design for YSL or is that label completely finished now?

    l have always been interested in following their careers. l would appreciate some news. Thankyou.

    Tom Ford currently does not have any set plans. According to his contract terms with PPR he is not to design for YSL as well after the resignation.

    YSL is now designed by Stefano Pilati, a former protege of Ford's. And no, the label is not finished; simply revamped.

    However the couture division is closed now. And YSL is retired like Hubert de Givenchy.

    ford is allegely going to go to hollywood and make a movie he claims he has at least one good story in him and thus feels the time is right to get it out he has not ruled out returning to desiging (what little he actually did of it as 'creative director&#39[​IMG] but claims he would never open his own label but would design for another one and pilati was designing all the gucci lines under ford's name for the last few years whilst ford was off at ysl rive gauche
