How old is Tan France and how did he get famous?
British fashion designer France was born in Doncaster to Pakistani parents, but now lives in the US.
France was born on April 20, 1983, which makes him 39-years-old.
He shot to fame as the fashion expert for the Netflix series Queer Eye.
The star is said to have had no idea that the reboot of the 2003 Bravo series, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, would become a hit.
France told Vogue: “People think we are lying when we say that, but there truly was no way of knowing just how massive this would become in a heartbeat.
“I thought it would be a niche programme that girls and gays would get behind. We couldn’t have been more wrong.”
He loved fashion from a young age, and was inspired to pursue it as a career by the Disney clothing made in his grandparent’s factory.
France studied fashion at Doncaster College and later worked for Zara and Selfridges before being made company director at Shade Clothing.
In 2011, he launched women’s clothing line, Kingdom & State, and he now lives in Utah in the United States after officially moving across the pond in 2015.
France has an avid Instagram following now, with 4million fans on his @tanfrance account.
Who is Tan France’s husband Rob?
France met illustrator Rob in the US and quickly realised he was the one.
France was raised a Muslim in the UK and Rob was raised a Mormon in Wyoming, and the pair have fused their beliefs.
In an interview with the New York Post, France said: “We practice some of our religions’ practices. We don’t practice them all. We practice what works for us.”
How many children does Tan have?
Tan and Rob have a son named Ismail.
The little one was born seven weeks early on July 10, 2021 and spent time in the NICU.
“Give our son a warm welcome,” Tan wrote in his announcement post on Instagram. “We love him so, so much. Like, fully obsessed. Our Surrogate is doing so great, post labour, and we couldn’t be more grateful for the greatest gift in our lives.”
Rob shared the same photo on his account, writing, “My two loves.”
What is Tan France’s net worth?
It’s fair to say Tan has amassed quite a fortune during his time in the spotlight.
The fashion guru has an estimated fortune of around £3.9M.
This is through his work on Netflix and his various businesses.
