Fashion Meets Music

Burberry Live at 121 Regent Street

It’s no secret that Burberry’s Chief Creative Office Christopher Bailey is a champion of the British music scene. The designer supports young Brit musicians at every opportunity whether it’s using up-and-coming bands as the backdrop to his seasonal catwalk shows, featuring a handful of talent in the Burberry ad campaigns (George Craig and Sam Beeton will be familiar billboard faces) to the more recent Live at 121 Regent Street series of gigs that are being held at the Regent Street flagship store.

Most recently Jake Bugg performed at the store and with The Kaiser Chiefs next on the list and more acts to be announced throughout 2013, the series is fast becoming the hottest music-meets-fashion ticket in town.

Tickets to the Live at 121 Regent Street go on sale tomorrow for the next live performance on 23 April. Uk.burberry.com

Meanwhile, this morning, luxury Italian label Gucci has announced the launch of its UK Music Fund. A project that will work towards discovering and nurturing British music talent. Teaming up with London’s World Heart Beat Music Academy, a centre where children who  may not have had access to music otherwise are given the opportunity to immerse themselves in musical training, Gucci will offering 10 of the school’s students the chance to attend the LA based programme the Grammy Camp.

Emili Sande who is fronting the project, along with Jo Whiley, said, ”It’s crucial that young people today have the chance to express themselves through music and are given opportunities to do so. Projects like this make music available to everyone; disadvantaged youths in particular will be able to tell their story and get their voices heard. These are issues that are close to my heart, so I’m really proud to be part of it.”
