Tory Burch is an American designer who launched her first label TRB by Tory Burch in February 2004, with a retail store in Manhattan's Nolita district. Most of the inventory sold out on the first day. When Oprah Winfrey endorsed her line on The Oprah Winfrey Show in April 2005, calling Burch "the next big thing in fashion", Burch's website received eight million hits the following day.
Since launch, the company has grown to include 160 Tory Burch stores worldwide, including flagships in New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Rome, Tokyo and Seoul, and e-commerce sites in seven languages.
The fashion line, which encompasses ready-to-wear, shoes, handbags, accessories, watches, home decor, and a fragrance and beauty collection, is also carried at over 3,000 department and specialty stores worldwide, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus Nordstrom and Bloomingdale's, as well as Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Galeries Lafayette, Lane Crawford and Isetan.
In September 2015, Burch also introduced Tory Sport, a separate performance activewear line, on a dedicated website. The collection includes designs for running, studio, tennis, swimming, and golf, as well as clothes for before and after a workout.
Burch's style has been described as preppy-boho and preppy-bohemian luxe and is associated with her T-logo medallion. All her styles are known for being easy to wear and versatile.
Both the Tory Burch line and the Tory Burch Sport line support the Tory Burch Foundation, which empowers women entrepreneurs by providing access to capital, entrepreneurial education programs, and networking events.
