The show marks the start of an innovation partnership between Burberry and WeChat (part of Tencent Group), which will see a series of creative collaborations and platform firsts throughout 2014. The first initiative of the collaboration begins tomorrow, with the most personalised social show experience to date.
 
On the Burberry WeChat platform, followers will be able to instantly personalise a digital version of the Runway Made to Order plaques with their name in either English or Chinese characters, as well as unlocking WeChat-only audio on the inspiration and details of key runway looks.
