That Utterly Rare & Iconic Tom Ford Gucci FW 2003 Black Corseted Bustle Dress!

Who could ever forget Tom Ford's fall/winter 2003 Collection for Gucci... with all of that corseted styling & heavenly detailing? Well this heavenly black bustle dress, surely one of the most memorable Ford pieces of all, was among the absolute "IT" pieces of that collection, . This dress is an Italian size 44 & fits a US size 6 to 8 beautifully. The dress has only been worn a couple of times & remains in lovely condition with barely any sign of wear... this extraordinary Tom Ford masterpiece is an absolute stunner & a must for every Ford lover or collector.

The Iconic Collections has been one of the world's leading collectors of Tom Ford for Gucci & Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche, as well as early pieces by both Gianni & Donatella Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Jean Paul Gaultier & Donna Karan since 2005. Over that time, TIC has come to comprise one of the largest & most impressive collections of Tom Ford runway pieces to be found anywhere in the world.

Prior to opening our 1stdibs store in September of 2015, many of the world’s leading designer wear re-sellers regularly sourced much of their stock through us privately; however, since that time, our stock has been available solely via this, our 1stdibs store.

Needless to say, Tom Ford for Gucci & YSL Rive Gauche pieces have become highly sought after by collectors since he parted ways with both couture houses back in 2004, & this applies all the more so to the rarer & most sought after pieces of the time. So, as the vast majority of our store stock is comprised of rare one-offs which have taken up to a decade to source, once these items are sold they will rarely be replaced...

TOM FORD - Tom Ford joined Gucci back in 1990 & was appointed as creative director of the fashion house in 1994. His first runway collection for Gucci, in 1995, was met with rave reviews, & he was catapulted into icon status the following year, when his Fall/Winter 1996 collection received huge international acclaim, enthralling critics & public alike & changing the face of fashion overnight.

A whirlwind of successes followed over the next few years, culminating in Gucci taking over the house of Yves Saint Laurent in 1999 & appointing Ford as Creative Director & head designer of the house's YSL Rive Gauche collection. Ford's Midas touch continued at YSL, with one after another of his collections receiving critical acclaim.

It began to look as if Tom Ford & the house of Gucci could truly do no wrong... until, in late 2003 the fashion industry was rocked by the news that Tom & Gucci had disagreed over creative control & that the two would be parting ways. In a press release of the time, a Gucci spokesperson was famously quoted as saying that "the label was bigger than the man". Tom's swansongs for the houses of Gucci & Yves Saint Laurent, in Fall/Winter 2004, would again be proclaimed masterpieces & Tom Ford runway pieces from both houses would become instant collector's items, fetching huge sums at auctions worldwide.

Sadly, it would be another seven long years before the women's fashion industry would again be touched by Tom's genius, when in one of the most highly anticipated fashion events of all time, in Fall/Winter 2011 Tom Ford held a "by invitation only" private launch of the very first collection from his own label. Today, Tom's star continued to shine as brightly as ever, with Tom Ford products turning over in excess of one billion dollars in 2014 alone, &, as early pieces from his Gucci & Yves Saint Laurent days get increasingly rarer, they've become more collectable than ever...
