Tory's Glory

New York fashion designer Tory Burch has always epitomised the effortless blend of uptown luxe and bohemian chic. This season, not only did she make her New York Fashion Week debut with a collection that was widely praised for its relaxed sophistication and timeless appeal, she also unveiled her new global flagship store on 797 Madison Avenue. For her new store, Burch sought the help of her friend, New York architect and interior decorator Daniel Romualdez. She wanted the store - actually spread out over  five floors of a historic Upper East Side townhouse - to have a residential feel that would make customers feel very much at home. "Daniel and I wanted to create a residential feel," she explained on her personal blog. "There are many elements that come from my apartment - the marble floor in the foyer, the oak-panelled room, the light fixtures and the colours seen throughout. We were also inspired by Madeleine Castaing. She was revolutionary in the world of interiors. I love how she mixed prints and textures."
