Most young girls face similar challenges when they are growing up, not only do we feel pressure to conform with certain ideologies through what we see in the media but we often have to overcome pressures within our peer groups. With age comes wisdom however, and so we learn to admire and respect our fellow women for their unique strengths and qualities. It’s our individualism and personal attributes that make us powerful, not our desire to conform to perceived stereotypes. I believe we have a duty as women to empower the younger generation of girls and help them avoid the obstacles and pain so many of us experienced in our earlier years. For me, Tory Burch as a brand wonderfully encapsulates this spirit. My niece Eve, is only 4 years old and is already trotting around the house in her mummy’s shoes. It’s an amazing memory most of us can recall and cherish from growing up. Wouldn’t it be nice however if we could see our daughters running around the house trying to emulate the elegant, driven women we one day hope them to be, instead of the styles which do not place women in the best light. Tory Burch helps instill this vision in the mind’s eye of the next generation and it’s a brand any woman should be proud to wear. Born out of an entrepreneurial mindset and tailored for aspirational woman, it’s the dominant, yet chic styling of Tory Burch that makes the brand so appealing to women who have success on the brain.
