In an effort to expand its business substantially outside the U.S., Burch has signed two long-term Asian distribution deals — the first with Look Inc. in Japan and the second with Samsung Cheil Industries Inc. in South Korea. The deals will mark the first time the Tory Burch brand will be sold in those countries. With the new agreements, as well as continued expansion in the U.S. and Europe, sources said the more than $200 million firm could experience significant growth in 2009, despite the economic climate. According to Tory Burch president Brigitte Kleine, the goal is to eventually run businesses of equal size in the U.S., Asia and Europe.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
