AmfAR to honour Tom Ford for being inspirational
The designer's second award this year
Along with his Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award, on October 29, the iconic designer will receive amfAR's Award of Inspiration at the annual Inspiration Gala Los Angeles.
The gala, which celebrates men's style, will recognise both his influential contributions to men's wear design and his commitment to fighting the AIDS crisis.
Ford has been a longtime supporter of amfAR and vocal advocate on behalf of people living with AIDS. Proceeds from the black-tie gala – which will be held at Milk studios – will benefit amfAR's life-saving AIDS research initiatives.
