Tory Burch fans may have been wondering about a recent tweet by the designer, thankful for a “great evening, great friends” in San Francisco. The occasion for the message was a fundraiser held at Tory’s Maiden Lane boutique, co-hosted by Vanessa Getty, Sloan Barnet, Juliet de Baubigny and Carol Bonnie, benefitting California Pacific Medical Center.
Stopping in California while on her way to Morocco, it was her first personal appearance in San Francisco since she opened her Maiden Lane store five years ago (a second store recently opened in the Westfield San Francisco Centre on Market Street.)
As Jennifer Raiser mentioned in an amusing article about the event for sfwire.com, “Burch was gushingly welcomed like a long-lost sorority sister by the throngs of young women who adore her preppy-posh take on country club classics, and by their mothers, too.”
It was such a successful event, we’d be surprised if it’s another five years before she visits us again. San Francisco loves Tory Burch!
