(NEW YORK) Tory Burch will be pulling double duty this summer working as a designer by day and moonlighting as an advice columnist by night. Pourquoi? InStyle magazine has tapped Burch to pen its monthly "Ask a Designer" column. Her editorial debut will grace newsstands in the July issue, out next week; an end date has yet to be set. Previous columnists who've lent their expertise include Rachel Roy and Marchesa's Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman. In addition to answering rounds of questions from readers, Burch will highlight recent celebs donning her designs and contribute to InStyle's Pinterest page, which will kick off this Friday.
