Tory Burch, then Robinson, was born and raised in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. She remembers an idyllic childhood, in a sprawling mansion with her two fabulous parents and three brothers.
Her first boutique was on Elizabeth Street in NYC, with an interior designed in a uniquely Tory fashion. On opening day, Tory watched as her pieces flew off the shelves. She called her line “Tory by TRB” until 2006, when it was shortened to just “Tory Burch.” With more then 15 categories of products, including everything from towels to totes to tunics, Tory Burch was a lifestyle brand from the beginning.
