Fashion FYI: Designer Tory Burch turns into author
Tory Burch sees the world in color, inspired by people, places and ideas — all of which influence her global fashion and lifestyle brand, synonymous with print and color.
In her first book, “Tory Burch in Color” (Abrams, $50), she explores the many things that living in color mean to her. The book is organized by colors that influence Burch’s life and designs. Each color is represented through images of her collections and travels; how she entertains; style icons; the works of artists, authors and interior designers she admires; and the advice of business leaders — many of whom are interviewed within.
The book also offers a glimpse into the more personal moments in her life such as family trips with her boys or indelible ways in which her parents, Buddy and Reva, influenced her collection, company and philosophy.
The foreword is written by Vogue’s Anna Wintour. Gross proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit the Tory Burch Foundation, which supports the economic empowerment of women entrepreneurs and their families in the United States through low-cost loans, mentorship and entrepreneurial education.
