Tory Burch did not go to design school? Business school? She did not start her company in the traditional manner? Hard to believe, but nonetheless true, Tory Burch built her fashion empire in an extremely unique way.
Graduating in 1988 from the University of Pennsylvania, Burch majored in art history (not quite the field she ended up in!). Several years later, Burch launched her company in 2004. As a company, Tory Burch relies on word of mouth and social media, rather than traditional advertising.
