We believe a congratulations are in order for fashion designer Tom Ford, who recently revealed that he and his partner of 27 years, Richard Buckley, secretly got married. The 52-year-old industry icon quite casually revealed the news during a conversation with writer Kinvara Balfour at London’s Regent Street Apple Store on Monday.
"I lost so many friends in college—I would say more than half of my closest friends. Richard, my partner of 27 years, had also gone through something also quite tough in his life," he said. "We are now married which is nice. I know that was just made legal in the UK which is great; we were married in the States."
The couple, whose son was born in September 2012, met at a fashion show in the 1980s in a moment that the designer has once described to Women’s Wear Daily as an instant attraction.
"I went to a fashion show and this silver-haired guy was staring at me with these piercing water-blue eyes," he said. "It scared me because I absolutely saw and knew my entire future."
Congratulations to the happy couple!
