Tom Ford doesn't regard fashion as ''art''.

The 50-year-old designer - who made his film directorial debut in 2009 with 'A Single Man' - always ensures his garments are functional and live up to traditional expectations of design, rather than being experimental or Avant garde.

He said: ''The film industry is slow and I would lose my mind. You can really only make a movie every couple of years.

''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 come off like little dolls from Russia.

''Fashion for me is a creative endeavour but it is not art for me.''

Tom also admitted he would've liked to have been a cosmetic surgeon had he not pursued a fashion career.

He said: ''In another life I would love to be a cosmetic surgeon because it's architectural. You know, you are trying to figure out where the seams go. Can I do it in one piece like Halston? Can you formaldehyde DNA?''

However, the designer is not a big fan of men going under The Knife.

Speaking at the 92Y talk in New York, he said:

''A man can't have a facelift very well because they cut here and then you have your sideburns in your ear. I quite like my beard. There is this little gap here. I am always looking to see whose got the hairs growing out of the side of the ears.''
