TORY BURCH SOUND BITES: Harry Smith interviewed Tory Burch for NBC’s “Rock Center with Brian Williams,” scheduled to air Thursday at 10 p.m. The interview is about Burch building up her business. In the interview, Burch said she knows what she wants when she goes shopping, which “translates to what [women] want.” She also says she’s learned “what women want along the way.”

Burch, who acknowledged that she didn’t go to either business or design school, said she cold-called people initially showing not a sketch book, but “image books” containing looks culled from magazines and other sources showing what she thought was missing in the stores.
Given her fast-growing company, she seems to have hit the mark.
