The crowd waiting for Tom Ford’s appearance at Saks Fifth Avenue Sunday night must have numbered at least over 1,000. Police barracades sectioned off the area to give room for the impatient audience. The launch is said to be the largest ever at Saks Fifth Avenue. Women waited for hours to be one of the first to experience “Amber Nude” and “Youth Dew”, the new make up collections Ford is launching through Estee Lauder.
The line, which consists of primarily neutral colors, nude lipsticks, earthtone eye shadows, a bronzer and nail polish is about accentuating natural beauty according to Ford.
Ford, the former head designer at Gucci, left the company in 2004 along with business partner and former head of Gucci, Domenico de Sole. With the launch of his sunglass collection in Paris last week and his make-up collection in New York Ford has officially announced his comeback to the fashion world. The makeup line is set to debut nationwide today.
