Burberry volta para semana de moda britânica.
Adorei encontrar essa notícia na minha caixa de email hoje pela manhã, já que na próxima temporada devo voltar a cobrir a London Fashion Week. Quando optamos em ir para Barcelona fazer o especial da moda catalã, tivemos que abrir mão de Londres, mas confesso que senti muita falta…
British Fashion Council Welcomes Burberry back to London Fashion Week
The British Fashion Council (BFC) today confirmed that Burberry will show its main
collection Prorsum at London Fashion Week this September. The BFC is delighted that
Burberry’s move to London coincides with its 25th anniversary celebration (25 years of
the British Fashion Council, London Fashion Week and the British Fashion Awards) and
the move of London Fashion Week to its new home at Somerset House.
Harold Tillman, Chairman of the British Fashion Council, said “Burberry
is quintessentially British, a leading heritage brand, a global success and we are
delighted they are joining London Fashion Week to celebrate 25 Years of British
Fashion. This September will see London Fashion Week moving to Somerset House
and showcasing the best of British talent: iconic, established and new, and Burberry
joining us is a fitting tribute to 25 years of creativity in London”.
Commenting on the move Christopher Bailey, Creative Director of Burberry, said
“London is our home – it’s the heart of this global luxury brand and the centre of all our
creativity. We are so excited to be showing during London Fashion Week and
particularly to be part of its historic 25th anniversary. We are incredibly proud of our
Britishness and this is really a wonderful opportunity to celebrate that in our home city.”
London Fashion Week will take place from 18th – 22nd September at its new cultural
home Somerset House. The move to a more centrally located and iconic venue is part of
the council’s 25 year celebrations. More names returning to the London Catwalks are
expected shortly, including a key British designer which will be announced early next
