tom ford?

Does anyone know who is Tom Ford? probably he's not well-known to most of you..

Anyway, he's an American fashion designer and film director.. he gained international fame for his turnaround of the Gucci fashion house and the creation of the Tom Ford label..

From 1994 - 2004, Tom Ford was the creative director for Gucci and YSL.. he brought Gucci out from almost being bankrupt and when he left in 2004, Gucci Group was valued at $10billion..

In April 2005, Ford announced the creation of the TOM FORD brand.. in that same year, Ford announced his partnership with Marcolin Group to produce and distribute optical frames and sunglasses as well as an alliance with Esteé Lauder to create the TOM FORD Beauty brand..

I was at Bangsar the other day do to some window shopping at the boutiques.. BUT i ended up shopping instead =.="

I was at Reliance Optical, looking at the sunnies.. there was a guy SA who kept bugging me to try on the glasses.. i pity him as he was really trying SO HARD to be helpful, hence i gave in and tried on a couple of glasses.. and oh boy, the glasses he chose for me.. it's either TOO big for my face or it's in purple color frame or green color and so forth..

I really wanted to just walked out as the guy didn't GIVE UP! indirectly he was chasing potential customers away..

My friend asked me to just sit down and other people will come to serve me.. true enough, i was presented with a few glasses to try on.. and within 10 mins, i found the perfect glasses.. i just bought it straightaway after negotiating the price! :D

Here it is! :-

I am truly happy with the service and price.. the girl SA suggested that i shouldn't wear a black frame glasses as it doesn't goes well with my hair color.. she knew i wanted Tom Ford hence she gave me this model which i fell in love with..

So what do you think? ;)
