Tory launched her first boutique in Nolita in 2004, after graduating with a degree in art history and working for designers Ralph Laure, Vera Wag, and Narciso Rodriguez at Loewe. The brand has grown into a global business with over 200 boutiques around the world and websites in North America, Europe, and Asia.
The Tory Burch Foundation was launched in 2009 in an effort to support fellow women entrepreneurs. Drawing on their experiences and on conversations with businesswomen from around the world, they have developed programs and initiatives that invest in the success and sustainability of women-owned small businesses by providing access to capital, entrepreneurial education, and mentoring and networking opportunities.
Tory Burch eyewear incorporates the iconic elements the brand is known for, including fretwork and the double-T logo.
