Tom Ford and Richard Buckley married: Fashion designer reveals he recently wed his partner of 27 years on trip to the Apple Store

The designer revealed that he’d wed the fashion journalist and the former editor of Vogue Hommes International at the Apple Store yesterday

Tom Ford has married his partner of 27 years, Richard Buckley.

The designer revealed the news that he’d wed the fashion journalist and the former editor of Vogue Hommes International in secret in a conversation with Kinvara Balfour at the Regent Street Apple Store on Monday 7 April. 

Addressing the speculation as candidly as ever, he said: "I lost so many friends in college - I would say more than half of my closest friends.

"Richard, my partner of 27 years, had also gone through something also quite tough in his life. We are now married which is nice.

"I know that was just made legal in the UK which is great; we were married in the States."

 

The couple first met at a fashion show in 1986.

Recalling his instant attraction to Buckley in an interview with WWD, Ford said: "I went to a fashion show and this silver-haired guy was staring at me with these piercing water-blue eyes.

"It scared me because I absolutely saw and knew my entire future."

The pair have one son together, Alexander John Buckley Ford.

The first gay marriage ceremonies took place in the UK on 29 March 2014.
