Rumours have been flying around for some time about a womenswear line, especially as Carine Roitfeld was spotted wearing archive Tom Ford pieces at recent fashion weeks. This time the rumours are becoming financial, with Thomson Reuters reporting that his company is seeking $50 million in investment. Apparently the first collection we'll see from the American designer wont be until 2011, wonder if he'll get Roitfeld to add her French Vogue magic touch to the proceedings as consultant?
