Tory Burch: the Designer

28 Mar

Tory Burch is hitting the fashion industry by storm. Her line, Tory Burch, launched in 2004 and quickly got noticed. Oprah endorsed her label the next year. Cameron Diaz, Oprah Winfrey and Jennifer Lopez wear her label. But this wasn’t the designer’s first time in the fashion industry. She worked for Vera Wang, worked at Harper’s Bazaar, and was a copywriter for Polo Ralph Lauren previously.

Tory Burch can be described as “preppy boho.” Her label includes a T logo medallion (left) on most products. Growing up, Tory was described as a tomboy and her clothing also gives a preppy tomboy look. She says, “Spring 2012 is inspired by Deauville in the Twenties — sporty and polished with an emphasis on special details.” Tory Burch is versatile to the everyday woman, ranging from simple T-shirts to sophisticated blouses.  However the prices range $100-$400.

Tory Burch flats are noticed instantly because of the T medallion. The shoes come in a variety of colors, ranging from hot pink to black. These flats are simple that add a sophisticated look to an outfit. Loafers are new this season. Burch adds colorful prints to the loafers to help them stand out. She even gives you ideas on how to style them (here). Burch came out with a Beverly heel which is pointed and has a bow on the side. This shoe adds a feminine touch to an outfit. It comes in different prints and colors to make the shoe pop.  Heels, wedges, sandals and flip flops are also her specialty.

Burch not only does fashion, but she does her part in humanities. She has her foundation, Tory Burch Foundation, which provides economic help to women and their families. The non-profit foundation empowers women with financial tools in order to succeed. They provide loans to women who are in need. At age 45, Burch has made a name for herself in the fashion industry and still managed to give back.
