As part of London Fashion Week’s 25th anniversary, British luxury brand Burberry Has proudly celebrated by closing the event on Tuesday 22nd September, moving its Spring Summer 2010 Burberry Prorsum womenswear show from Milan.
British actress Emma Watson, model Agyness Dean and TV presenter Alexa Chung were the stars attending the only red carpet event of London Fashion Week. A-listers Liv Tyler, Mary Kate Olsen and Orlando Bloom, as well as Maggie Cheung, Freida Pinto and Dev Patel have also made an appearance. The Burberry show – its first major show outside of Milan – is also the largest of the Week and features the longest catwalk and front row.
The London-based global luxury brand is making a triumphant return home, where the company recently opened its new global headquarters at Horseferry House in Westminster. The premises were designed by Burberry creative director Christopher Bailey and feature cutting edge showrooms, design studios, offices and an in-house photo studio.
Burberry joined the FTSE 100 last week, further demonstrating its position as a top ten global luxury brand and, despite the recession, as a major exporter of a flourishing British creative economy.
