(NEW YORK) Tom Ford is dodging the question of when he’ll launch his anxiously anticipated women’s line—his first offerings for the ladies since he departed Gucci in February 2004—but details are emerging, according to WWD. Ford has reportedly tapped Caroline Tixier, a women's ready-to-wear designer at Givenchy, and Pablo Coppola, an accessories designer at Alexander McQueen, to join his team. Tom Ford’s reps and business partner Domenico De Sole declined to comment on the hires, but Ford has stated in the past that it might take him 18 months to get the line up and running—providing he finds the right financial backing.
Though Tixier currently holds a post at Givenchy, as recently as 2007 she worked as Alexander McQueen’s womenswear design assistant—so between she and Coppola, there will be a lot of McQueen blood running through Ford’s new line. Though nothing has been confirmed by Ford, it is expected that the womenswear line will debut for Fall 2011 in either Milan or New York.
