In light of his highly anticipated coffee table book "Tom Ford 002" we are sharing our favourite quotes from the fashion icon throughout his incredible career. 
“Real fashion change comes from real changes in real life. Everything else is just decoration.” 
“Time and silence are the most luxurious things today.” 
“Only hire people you want to have dinner with.” 
“I am tired of the cult of youth. The cultural rejection of old age, the stigmatization of wrinkles, grey hair, of bodies furrowed by the years. I am fascinated by Diana Vreeland, Georgia O'Keeffe and Louise Bourgeois, women who have let time embrace them without ever cheating. Society today condemns this, me, I celebrate it.” 
“It's hard not to be sexy in a pair of high heels.” 
“I probably do have an obsessive personality, but striving for perfection has served me well” 
"Good manners is what transforms a man into a gentleman."
