Tory Burch sees the world in color, inspired by people, places, and ideas—all of which influence her brand, synonymous with print and color. In her first book, she explores what living in color means to her. The book is organized by color, each one brought to life through images of her own collections and travels; how she entertains; style icons; the works of artists, authors, and interior designers she admires; and the advice of business leaders—many of whom are interviewed within. The book also offers a glimpse into the more personal moments in Tory’s life, such as family trips with her boys or the indelible ways in which her parents, Buddy and Reva Robinson, influenced her collection, company, and philosophy. The foreword is written by Anna Wintour, artistic director of Condé Nast and editor-in-chief of Vogue, and the cover features Damien Hirst's Beautiful Primal Urges Rug, © Damien Hirst and Science Ltd., all rights reserved / DACS, London / ARS, NY 2014.

Branding Queens is a collection of stories about twenty women entrepreneurs who, against all odds, built famous brands that were beloved by millions of customers worldwide. Building a brand isn’t easy. Establishing an iconic brand is one in a million. Add the fact of being a woman in an unfortunately still male-dominated business world, and you’d think it was almost impossible. Branding Queens celebrates the branding accomplishments of these self-made women who persevered in a man’s world to create an enduring brand dynasty. This book profiles the brands and lives of Barbe-Nicole Clicquot of Veuve Clicquot champagne; Anna Bissell, cofounder of the BISSELL Carpet Sweeper Company; Madam C.J. Walker, Elizabeth Arden, Estée Lauder, Mary Kay Ash, and Anita Roddick (of The Body Shop), all cosmetics and beauty mavericks; women’s apparel innovators Coco Chanel, Liz Claiborne, Tory Burch, and Sara Blakely; Margaret Rudkin, founder of Pepperidge Farm; Olive Ann Beech cofounder of Beech Aircraft; Ruth Handler, cofounder of Mattel toys; Katharine Graham, owner of The Washington Post; Queen Elizabeth II, Sovereign of fifteen nations; Lillian Vernon, direct-mail maven; media moguls Martha Stewart and Oprah Winfrey; and Debbi Fields, founder of Mrs. Fields Cookies. These are the branding queens. Branding expert Kim D. Rozdeba unravels these fascinating stories with a clear perspective on creating a brand in twenty different ways. You will learn how these women marketed hope, health, dignity, confidence, beauty, empowerment, and happiness through their products and services. To help uncover the secrets to these women’s success, Kim assesses how the branding queens approached each of five branding components—Commitment, Construct, Community, Content, and Consistency (the 5 C’s). These women lived life to its fullest by following their passions and purpose. Their stories are just as big as their brands. Branding Queens will inspire you, empower you, and encourage your entrepreneurial spirit.

An anthology Malcolm Gladwell has called "riveting and indispensable," The Best Business Writing is a far-ranging survey of business's dynamic relationship with politics, culture, and life. This year's selections include John Markoff ( New York Times) on innovations in robot technology and the decline of the factory worker; Evgeny Morozov ( New Republic) on the questionable value of the popular TED conference series and the idea industry behind it; Paul Kiel ( ProPublica) on the ripple effects of the ongoing foreclosure crisis; and the infamous op-ed by Greg Smith, published in the New York Times, announcing his break with Goldman Sachs over its trading practices and corrupt corporate ethos. Jessica Pressler ( New York) delves into the personal and professional rivalry between Tory and Christopher Burch, former spouses now competing to dominate the fashion world. Peter Whoriskey ( Washington Post) exposes the human cost of promoting pharmaceuticals off-label. Charles Duhigg and David Barboza ( New York Times) investigate Apple's unethical labor practices in China. Max Abelson ( Bloomberg) reports on Wall Street's amusing reaction to the diminishing annual bonus. Mina Kimes ( Fortune) recounts the grisly story of a company's illegal testing -- and misuse -- of a medical device for profit, and Jeff Tietz ( Rolling Stone) composes one of the most poignant and comprehensive portraits of the financial crisis's dissolution of the American middle class.

A fascinating chronicle of how celebrity has inundated the world of fashion, realigning the forces that drive both the styles we covet and the bottom lines of the biggest names in luxury apparel. From Coco Chanel’s iconic tweed suits to the miniskirt’s surprising comeback in the late 1980s, fashion houses reigned for decades as the arbiters of style and dictators of trends. Hollywood stars have always furthered fashion’s cause of seducing the masses into buying designers’ clothes, acting as living billboards. Now, forced by the explosion of social media and the accelerating worship of fame, red carpet celebrities are no longer content to just advertise and are putting their names on labels that reflect the image they—or their stylists—created. Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Jessica Parker, Sean Combs, and a host of pop, sports, and reality-show stars of the moment are leveraging the power of their celebrity to become the face of their own fashion brands, embracing lucrative contracts that keep their images on our screens and their hands on the wheel of a multi-billion dollar industry. And a few celebrities—like the Olsen Twins and Victoria Beckham—have gone all the way and reinvented themselves as bonafide designers. Not all celebrities succeed, but in an ever more crowded and clamorous marketplace, it’s increasingly unlikely that any fashion brand will succeed without celebrity involvement—even if designers, like Michael Kors, have to become celebrities themselves. Agins charts this strange new terrain with wit and insight and an insider’s access to the fascinating struggles of the bold-type names and their jealousies, insecurities, and triumphs. Everyone from industry insiders to fans of Project Runway and America's Next Top Model will want to read Agins’s take on the glitter and stardust transforming the fashion industry, and where it is likely to take us next.

This book presents a realistic perspective on the paradoxes employees face when navigating work and personal responsibilities for career success. The author answers the critical question of how to achieve sustainable and rewarding work–life integration from a perspective of "both/and" rather than "either/or." While most books focus on a fragmented, hyper-effective view of women and leadership, this book advances the need for an integrated approach. Its Competing Values Framework acts as an organizing model that aligns personal competency with organizational capability, helping readers to identify important leadership roles and competencies, break societal barriers, and choose the right set of behaviors to fit their personal and professional goals. In-chapter text boxes provide personal insight from real employees both entering and established in leadership positions, offering a varied perspective on the challenges and resolutions available to women in management. As men become more engaged with their families, they too will find this book a useful tool. Students in diversity management, women and management, career development, leadership, and organizational behavior classes will benefit from this realistic and sustainable alternative to the "have it all" model.
