Over 1300 guests attended to watch the show including close Burberry friends, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Cara Delevigne, Keira Knoghtley and Naomi Watts were amongst guests for final show on 17 February 2018 – Dimco Buildings, London.
Christopher Bailey’s final collection for Burberry was celebrated against a multisensory installation that forms part of a new collaboration with United Visual Artists (UVA).The collection revisited past icons and house codes, including the trench coat, the aviator, the cape, the poncho and the military coat as well as introduced new designs against a backdrop of swinging pendulums.
Cara Delevingne, discovered by Christopher and Burberry over seven years ago, closed the show and led the finale as models walked under a spectrum of rainbow laser lights. Christopher Bailey, Burberry President and Chief Creative Officer said.
“My final collection here at Burberry is dedicated to – and in support of – some of the best and brightest organisations supporting LGBTQ+ youth around the world. There has never been a more important time to say that in our diversity lies our strength, and our creativity.” #LFW
