She’s known for her signature print and uplifting colors, but Tory Burch is so much more than that! I had the opportunity to meet her at the Middle East launch of her designer brand and I came away super impressed by her down-to earth, natural charm. She wanted to know what Fashionably Yours was about, what I thought of the launch event, (which, by the way, was fantastic) and personally thanked me for coming!
Her SS’13 collection, which was showcased at the launch, was equally enthralling. Very relaxed, very boho chic, global hippie, and bright, ofcourse! Tory Burch spoke to Vogue, about the collection backstage, at the New York Fashion Week SS’13, “It’s remixing American classicism; about a girl who travels the world, and takes something from every place she goes. So there is guipure lace and tie-dye or making a polo shirt into an evening dress, and then pairing it with Moroccan slippers.”
The hemline dropped considerably and attention was drawn towards the knees and ankles, with details like tassles and beadwork. I loved some of the handbags and necklaces seen on the runway. In all, the collection could be called effortlessly chic, just like the designer herself.
