Tory Burch – A look behind the brand
Chic, timeless designs mixed with embellishments, prints and splashes of colour, Tory Burch is a bestselling brand at Daniel Footwear and it’s not hard to see why. The flawless designs released each season represent much more than just a brand, and are more like a lifestyle or image that many people invest in resulting in the collections flying off the shelves.
The woman behind the brand, Tory Burch herself, is not only a fashion designer but a philanthropist too, launching the Tory Burch Foundation in 2009 (www.toryburchfoundation.org) that gives women ‘economic opportunity’ in the United States. As a result of this many women are given the opportunity to launch their own businesses and provide themselves with better financial support which would not have been possible before.
After working for several designers Tory Burch opened her first shop in 2004 in New York offering handbags, jewellery and a ready to wear collection. Following an appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show a year later as the ‘Next Big Thing in Fashion’, ToryBurch.com receives millions of hits in a day and Oprah is later often seen wearing the brand’s clothing.
During the same year Tory Burch is rewarded with the Fashion Group International Rising Star Award for Best New Retail Concept. A result of her shop being decorated in the style of a living room with luxury decorations such as vintage chandeliers that gave the boutique a unique feel in contrast to the ‘minimal’ look that many other shops were opting for at the time.
Inside Tory’s award winning stores:
In 2006, the popular Reva pump (named after Tory’s Mother) is released and to this day remains a bestselling design that fast became a wardrobe staple for many celebrities.
