Los Angeles: American designer Tom Ford relates fashion with creative endeavour.

"Fashion for me is a creative endeavour but it is not art for me," quoted Ford as saying.

The 50-year-old designer, who ventured into films in 2009 with his directorial debut "A Single Man", prefers designing clothes over making movies.

"The film industry is slow and I would lose my mind. You can really make a movie every couple of years," he said.

"I love to design. I am a commercial fashion designer. I always design jackets with two sleeves. I don`t design jackets with three sleeves or the layers and layers that come off like little dolls from Russia," he added.
