Calling all gentlemanly gold-diggers! Tory Burch, the recent billionaire, coutroom victor, and of course, fashion designer has broken up with her beau of five years, former head of Warner Music Group Lyor Cohen.
A career at Tory Burch apparently isn’t all gold logo flats and two-toned sweaters — at least according to Jessica Jones, a former employee at Burch’s flagship store in Los Angeles, who is suing the American designer’s company for unspecified damages over some pretty unpleasant allegations.
2013 is starting to look like a very good year for Tory Burch. On New Year’s Eve, she and ex-husband Chris finally settled their messy year-long legal battle, and now, Tory’s a billionaire thanks to the sale of Chris’ stake in her company.
After months of a messy legal battle over the similarities and business competition between Tory Burch‘s eponymous brand and her ex-husband Chris Burch’s lower-priced line C. Wonder, including Christmas subpoenas back and forth and no shortage of verbal battling on both sides, the once-married pair have settled their lawsuit.
It’s hardly a holly jolly Christmas in the Burch households this year. Page Six reports that the latest development in the messy, ongoing dispute between Tory and Chris Burch involves heavy-hitting lawyers and lots o’ subpoenas — none of which, we imagine, were tied up with a festive bow.
At this point, everyone from Anna Wintour to Diane von Furstenberg has weighed in on the legal battle being waged between Tory Burch and her ex-husband Chris Burch. But last night, Tory herself addressed the conflict during a conversation hosted by CNN’s Alina Cho at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Ever composed, here’s what she had to say.
For something involving people who make pretty things for a living, the fight between Tory Burch and ex-husband Chris Burch sure is ugly.
Tory and ex-husband Chris Burch have had a rough couple of years, what with his new company C. Wonder and public falling outs. But the War of the Burches isn’t over, and now Chris is suing Tory and her company for allegedly messing with his own business.
It was a sunny morning in the glass-walled atrium where Tory Burch held her spring 2013 runway show yesterday, and the designer offered up appropriately cheery frocks for the occasion. Models paraded down the white lacquered runway in midi dresses in marigold eyelet or printed with stalks of wheat, an inspiration echoed in the unkempt fishtail braids sported by each.
Right on the heels of Tory Burch‘s WWD profile, Chris Burch has taken to CBS This Morning to discuss C. Wonder and his ex-wife.
Today Women’s Wear Daily ran a lengthy profile on Tory Burch. While it’s not nearly as juicy as the New York Magazine one a few months back, it’s still chock full of interesting tidbits.
Happy Mother’s Day, everyone! In honor of this very special day, we’ve taken the expression “mother knows best” to heart and rounded up some of the best pieces of advice that top designers say they ever received from their moms.
Unsurprisingly, pink was the dress code color of the evening at last night’s Hot Pink Party hosted by the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
It was a quiet night at the Tribeca Film Festival, where Jennifer Morrison, Jamie Chung, and ESPN’s Erin Andrews were fete-ing new films in varying degrees of premiere-appropriate attire. Uptown, ladies who lunch mixed with ladies who run makeup companies who mixed with models, designers, and television hosts for the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s annual spring ball, which was sponsored by Gucci and which had a perhaps unofficial dress code of black and white and gold. Also, Cameron Diaz went out in Las Vegas.
Last night entertainment and fashion folk alike stepped out to celebrate the start of the Tribeca Film Festival at the State Supreme Courthouse in New York City. Vanity Fair threw the fete, which drew an eclectic crowd of actors, designers, models, and…Judge Judy.
And the War of Burches heats up.
If you thought Tory Burch‘s preppy and polished aesthetic meant she was too sweet to take anybody to court, you were wrong. Word has it she’s thinking about taking her ex-husband and co-chair of the board of directors of her company Chris Burch to court over his new retail concept, C. Wonder.
