LONDON – Britain’s Financial Times recently published an insightful profile piece about American fashion designer, businesswoman and philanthropist Tory Burch. A global fashion icon, Burch’s ready-to-wear, shoes, handbags, accessories, watches, home decor, and fragrance and beauty collections are carried by 3,000 department and specialty stores, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman-Marcus, Bloomingdale’s, and Nordstrom in the United States. Her European fans seek out Burch’s new lines each season at Harvey Nichols in London and Galeries Lafayette in Paris.
Burch’s talents go beyond designing. In addition to being chief creative officer of her brand, Tory Burch LLC, she’s also the company’s executive chairman. No wonder she was listed on Forbes’ “Most Powerful Women in the World” list.
Tory loves to acquire interesting, beautiful things for her homes, but she doesn’t assign the job to decorators or professional shoppers. With an eye like hers, Tory Burch knows exactly what she likes and never gets it wrong. She’s an enthusiastic buyer who loves to discover cool websites — including the online marketplace she calls an “addiction”: LiveAuctioneers.
