Designer Bio…

With over a 160 year history, Burberry was founded by Thomas Burberry in 1856 and specialized in outdoor wear for the next hundred years until the 80s when the brand really began to expand thanks to pop icons like Twiggy and the Beatles in the 1960s. Forty years after Twiggy, Burberry has moved up into high fashion when in 2009, Burberry first appeared at London Fashion Week.

Christoper Bailey’s role as creative director for Burberry since 2001 has no doubt been a success. Responsible for the company’s overall image, including all advertising, corporate art direction and store design, Bailey has put his sartorial stamp on the brand; in his nearly 10 years at the company, Bailey has garnered Designer of the Year at the British Fashion Awards in 2005 and 2008.
