WATCH: Tory Burch captures Princess Diana's fearlessness and strength at New York Fashion Week

Cape Town – Fashion designer, Tory Burch looked to one of the most legendary fashion icons of the 20th century for inspiration at New York Fashion Week: Princess Diana. 

She said her work was inspired by "Diana Spencer" but explained, "I wanted to be very careful not to be too literal because she’s clearly a style icon, but that’s not what was so interesting to me. 

"To me it was about... everything that she did."

Tory explained she wanted it to be about "her fearlessness, her being a mom that protected her family, and just how strong of a woman she was".
