It’s very rare that one designer, one brand, one mastermind can define a generation. Even more rare is a designer’s ability to transform their reach from an iconic ballet flat to a ready-to-wear clothing line known for it’s creative use of design and texture beyond the logo.
The Tory Burch brand gained massive popularity with the launch of her Reva ballet flat in 2006, named after Tory’s mother. Emblazoned with the renowned T-medallion on the toe, this iconic brand has been a fixture on the perfectly pedicured feet of sorority girls across the nation. However, Tory’s true genius comes from her ability to capture the intersection between modernized boho-chic and prep-perfection with her luxe, yet accessible clothing and jewelry line.
While this effortlessly-chic impeccable brand needs no validation of its credibility in the fashion world, Tory has received the stamp of approval from the likes of Oprah Winfrey and Anna Wintour. When Tory Burch’s newest collection hit the runway recently for the Resort 2014 shows, she took us on a whirlwind trip not only around the world, but through the decades. With exotic prints, elegant cuts, embellished detailing, and classic tweed we watched resort wear go to work, literally and figuratively!
A now established member of the Forbes Billionaire list and one of country’s must influential philanthropists, Tory Burch once said, “I think you can have it all.” With vast aspirations and dedication, I couldn’t agree more.
This brand is more than a clothing line, it is a lifestyle. The Tory Burch woman heads up a board meeting, rolls up her sleeves to volunteer for a cause, manages her own investment portfolio, plays the perfect party host, shines on the red carpet, and knows when to take a break from it all to wind down with her family at the beach. Wherever life may take this woman, Tory Burch will be there ready to dress her!
