Buro 24/7 Exclusive: Miroslava Duma interviews Tory Burch
Twice as nice
The number two is an important digit for Tory Burch as it signifies her twin boys as well as her zodiac sign, Gemini. Inspired by this, the American fashion designer introduced a new motif to complement the Autumn/Winter 2016 collection's equestrian influences: the 'Gemini Link'.
Distinguished by two gold-coloured links joined together, the design motif is featured across ready-to-wear and accessories including a wool-jacquard pattern on a cropped jacket, hardware on an eel-stripe hobo bag and a belt-buckle on a floor-length puffer coat. The detail at the center of the double link is a subtle nod to the brand's graphic double-T logo, drawing inspiration from Morrocon architecture and Burch's favourite interior designer, David Hicks.
With its symmetrical double links, the Gemini Link celebrates life's dualities and the two sides to every story. Just like many women of today, the designer has a multidimensional approach to life: she is a mother and an entrepreneur, a designer and a CEO, has a business side and a creative side. Sharing the same sentiments is none other than founder of Buro 24/7 and digital entrepreneur, Miroslava Duma. Duma juggles motherhood as well as her career as a successful businesswoman, balancing these hats in an admirable and inspiring way, just like Burch.
At a meeting in Burch's offices in NYC, Duma and Burch discussed the idea of duality and how they balance being a mother with running their respective businesses, the importance of technology in fashion and so much more in this exclusive interview.
The Fall/Winter 2016 collection is available at Tory Burch boutiques around the world and at toryburch.com
