Tom Ford is the man

August has ended which means summer is almost behind us here in Dallas – only a few more 100+ degree days. It also means that the September issues of fashion magazines are prominent on newsstands. Vogue September 2103 is 902 pages and Harper’s Bazaar weighs in at exactly 600 pages with SJP (Sarah Jessica Parker) gracing the front page.

In Dallas, the September issue of FD luxe, our primo go-to fashion and lifestyle magazine published by The Dallas Morning News, spotlights film maker and designer Tom Ford (in sunglasses, of course) on its cover.

The interview between Mr. Ford and Rob Brinkley, FD luxe’s Editor-in-chief, reveals the influence of the designer’s roots and early boyhood growing up in Austin, Texas. http://fdluxe.dallasnews.com/2013/09/finding-tom-ford.html/

Finding Tom Ford (2)

I’m honored because Rob chose one of the paintings from my “Emergent Series” to feature in the September issue of FD luxe. Why? Because it’s a tribute to Tom Ford who I greatly admire for his multi-dimensional creativity. He can do film, architecture and design. The title of my piece is “Emergent Series: Finding Tom Ford” (see image above). What I so appreciate is the way Rob captured the essence of my work through his talents as an editor and writer. Here is the article, titled “Tom Ford, times two: A Dallas artist immortalizes the fashion designer in her latest work, twice,” reprinted with permission of The Dallas Morning News:

Thank you Rob.

To autumn leaves changing color and fashion, Meg
