First Fashion Friday’s Tory Burch

Oprah recently called her “the next big thing in fashion.”  Her website hit 8 million hits that day.  She was born in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania in 1967.  She majored in Art History, but never used her degree.  She worked for lines like Ralph Lauren and Vera Wang, but never designed clothes.  Who is she?  Famed designer, Tory Burch of course.

So how did a girl who didn’t major in fashion, and never designed clothing start her own clothing line?  She knew what she wanted to do and went for it.  In 2004, she started her own line, with tunics and the famous “Reva” flat.  Once she appeared on the Oprah show in 2005, success was only natural.

**Her famous Reva flat

According to the Los Angeles Times, by 2008, 300,000 pairs of her signature flat had been sold.  She is an example of how to live the American Dream, that’s for sure.  Her annual sales are around $200 million.
