American designer and director Tom Ford will step down as chairman of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Vogue Business reported.
His term will end on 31 May, 2022, but the fashion designer will remain in an advisory role over the summer while the Board searches for a new chairman.
“When I began my role as chairman in June of 2019, my goal was to help the American fashion industry become more globally recognized for its talent and importance. I could not have imagined the extraordinary circumstances that both the industry and the world would have to navigate—that a pandemic would shut the world down and change the course of our lives and of our businesses forever,” wrote Ford in a statement distributed by the CFDA.
