Q10 With Tory Burch


This week's Q10 guest is none other then the fabulous Tory Burch. Tory was born, raised, and educated in the Philadelphia metropolitan area. She later moved to New York City where she began a career working with legendary designers Polo Ralph Lauren and Vera Wang. It was not until 2004 when Tory launched her fashion label which quickly began to gain notoriety even being endorsed by Oprah Winfrey.

Tory wanted to create a brand that embodied stylish yet wearable clothing and accessories for all women of all ages. The popular line of Reva ballerina flats were named after her mother, one of her greatest influences. Her inspirations come from her love interest in music, art, culture, and travel, in which you can see through her collection in unique details, graphic prints, and bold colors.

It was my great pleasure to have the chance to speak with Tory this week.
