Designer Tom Ford is off the market! Ford announced his marriage to Richard Buckley on Monday evening at the Regent Street Apple store in London, during a segment with Fashion In Conversation host Kinvara Balfour.
The legendary fashion designer met Buckley — who was the Editor in Chief of Vogue Hommes International — at a fashion show, and the two have been partners for 27 years. According to British Vogue, Ford is now wearing a wedding ring. He formally announced the union by saying,
"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. We are now married which is nice," he said. "I know that was just made legal in the UK which is great; we were married in the States."
The pair currently reside in London, where Ford's eponymous fashion label is based, according to Fashionista. They have a young son together, Alexander John Buckley Ford, who was born in 2012. Congratulations Tom Ford and Richard Buckley! It is heart-warming to see such a strong, loving partnership officially recognized by the governments of both the U.K. and the United States.
