Anna Wintour & Diane von Furstenberg on Tory Burch's Lawsuit

Anna Wintour, DVF Speak Out Against Chris Burch



Two very powerful women have made a very public showing of support for Tory Burch, whose ex-husband Chris Burch sued her last month over disputes between their businesses.

"The person who has been at every single appointment over the years is Tory," says Anna Wintour in the December issue of Vanity Fair. "Tory is the one who has always talked to us about her aspirations, and her ideas for growth, how she saw the brand, asked advice on people she might want to bring in — it's always been, as far as we're concerned, 100 percent Tory's business, and we've never had anything to do with Chris."

In his suit, Chris accuses Tory and her management team of interfering with the development of Chris's year-old retail concept, C. Wonder. It also tries to guarantee that Chris will be able to sell his shares in Tory's company and asks that Tory be removed from her own board of directors.

Rumors circulated for months that Tory would sue Chris because of similarities between C. Wonder and her designer label, which they founded together in 2004. Chris beat Tory to it when he filed his suit in October. But Diane von Furstenberg says his attempt to sabotage Tory's business won't prove successful.

"What I find bizarre and nasty, and can't possibly finish well for him, is that he is . . . hurting [her business] by sabotaging it, by copying it," the designer said. "I don't understand."
