Tori Soudan is the founder of her eponymous brand, an Italian made line that started in 2011 and features an array of women’s luxury products such as shoes, handbags, and belts. The collection has attracted women from all corridors, both through direct sales online and at upscale salon events, including celebrities Zendaya, Carrie Underwood, Debbie Allen, Angela Bassett, Viola Davis, Saweetie, Janelle Monáe, and a host of others. The brand has also been seen on popular networks and in publications such as The Tamron Hall Show, BET, InStyle, Vogue, and Essence. Recently, Tori was awarded the Global Footwear Awards 2021 “Independent Designer of the Year” and “Women’s Fashion Winner.” Currently, her products are sold exclusively online and at special events.
Born and raised in Connecticut, Tori and her family now call Baltimore, Maryland home. She is a board member of the College for Creative Studies, a student advisor and senior project judge for the Fashion Institute of Technology Footwear & Design Department, and a board member of the Roland Park Country School. When Tori’s not coming up with her next great design idea, you can find her indulging in a spa treatment, listening to new music, or putting her foreign language skills to work traveling the world.
