It includes shoes, handbags, ready-to-wear, accessories, home and fragrance. Since launching in 2004, our company has grown from a single boutique on a remote street in downtown Manhattan into a global brand with a presence in more than 50 countries. But in many ways we are only just beginning—there is so much we want to do!

We are a purpose-led company. Tory started our company so she could make a difference in women’s lives from the collections we design to the work of the Tory Burch Foundation, which launched in 2009 with the mission to advance women’s empowerment and entrepreneurship. Our incredible team is key to our success. We believe that each employee plays a vital role in our continuing efforts to grow and evolve.
