In Texas, designer touts big and bold new book

Former Gucci designer Tom Ford's new book is like his description of Texas fashion: big and bold.

"There's a boldness to Texans that carries over into fashion and I like that," said Ford, who stepped down in the spring as creative director for the Italian luxury fashion house after 10 years.

The native Texan was in Dallas on Thursday night for a party to celebrate his new book, "Tom Ford," which is a look back at his designs for Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent.

The 43-year-old said that doing the book was cathartic after leaving Gucci, where he spent 14 years.
