Tory Burch has created a multimillion-dollar lifestyle brand based on her preppy-hobo chic lifestyle.
Her accolades include Accessories Designer of the Year with the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Accessory Brand Launch of the Year from Accessories Council of Excellence and Rising Star Award for best new Retail Concept from the Fashion Group International.
Combined with the influences that come from her love of art, music, culture and travel, Tory credits her parents Buddy and Reva with adding their stylish flair to her palate.
After studying at the University of Pennsylvania, paying her dues in the public relations and advertising departments for Ralph Lauren, Vera Wang and Narciso Rodriguez, Tory approaches design with a keen marketer’s eye and sensibility. Since the launch of her own line in 2004, Tory has made her signature “T” an internationally iconic symbol of style.
Still, she has always maintained a dedication to giving back.
