Burberry to host a special event at LFW for BFC
May '09
Burberry is pleased to announce that it will be closing London Fashion Week on Tuesday 22 September 2009, moving its Spring Summer 2010 Burberry Prorsum womenswear show from Milan.

The catwalk show celebrates the 25th anniversaries of both London Fashion Week and the British Fashion Council.

Burberry has a history of supporting British arts and creativity and continues to invest and develop British talent through a number of initiatives.

Burberry will also be hosting an event to mark the occasion on the evening of the show at its new recently opened Global Headquarters at Horseferry House, in Westminster.

“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.” Christopher Bailey, Burberry Creative Director.

The new 160,000 square foot Global Headquarters at Horseferry House, designed by Burberry Creative Director Christopher Bailey, feature cutting edge showrooms, design studios, offices and an in-house photo studio.

Last month, Burberry opened its new Americas Headquarters on Madison Avenue, featuring cutting edge showrooms and offices, also designed by Christopher Bailey to mirror the aesthetic of its London Global Headquarters.

Burberry is also pleased to announce that New York City's Mayor Bloomberg has declared Thursday 28 May as the official “Burberry Day” in New York, when the 50 foot Burberry logo on top of the new Americas Headquarters will be lit for the first time. The Building at 444 Madison Avenue is one of only six skyscrapers in Manhattan with permission for illuminated rooftop signage through a grandfather clause.
