People Who Went To Penn: Tory Burch


With spring break comes spring fashion! There's nothing like the feeling of strutting down Locust, latte in hand, rocking some classic ballet flats on a warm March day. Many a Penn betch can be seen wearing the designs of our most fashionable alum, Tory Burch.

Before she became a fashion icon, Tory graduated in '88 with a major in Art History. Too bad The Walk wasn't around when Tory was here, because she probably would have owned it. This theta alum went on to become an accomplished fashion designer, business woman, and philanthropist.

Known for her preppy/boho style, Tory's fashion line is carried at over 1,000 department stores. She's dated celebs (Lance Armstrong!), made appearances on ANTM and Gossip Girl, and even been endorsed by Oprah! Needless to say, she oozes fabulosity. And like a true Penn do-gooder, Tory has given back with her charity foundation, which provides economic opportunities to women and their families. Alas, yet another ridiculously successful Penn alum who makes us wonder if we will ever  do anything half as cool with our lives.
