Tory Burch is a name that has become a pillar in the world of luxury fashion
, but even though the designer is experiencing a great deal of success now, she had to start somewhere. That "somewhere" was with the help of her ex-husband, Chris Burch, who helped her raise $10 million through investors after initially co-investing their own $2 million to get the label launched. Six years later, the Burches are divorced and Tory's label is estimated to be worth upward of $2 billion— it's also at the center of a lawsuit filed by her ex.
