SOUNDBITES — “Fashion is something I love but it is a commercial creative endeavor for me. This was the first thing I’ve ever done that was really just pure expression. Where I wasn’t necessarily thinking about how I was gonna sell it or who was gonna see it. And maybe that’s dumb. I do want people to see it because if they don’t see it you don’t communicate. But, for me it was something I just had to make. It was incredibly personal to me.” —Designer and first-time director Tom Ford on making A Simple Man
