Christopher Bailey Wrapped His Final Burberry Show in LGBTQ Pride

Christopher Bailey Wrapped His Final Burberry Show in LGBTQ Pride”

After 17-years at the helm of historic British fashion house, Burberry, Christopher Bailey's last dance as creative director ended beneath a rainbow. It was a fitting emotion for the designer whose curtain call was an LGBTQ-infused return to his working class roots.

Prior to the runway debut, the designer announced that he'd made a decision to dedicate his last collection for the fashion house to LGBTQ+ Youth.

"There has never been a more important time to say that in our diversity lies our strength, and our creativity".

He is credited for transforming the once-struggling British label into a luxury powerhouse and the biggest drawcard in London Fashion Week.

Model-activist Adwoa Aboah opened the show in a graffiti print fleece hoodie, which contrasted her rainbow covered skirt below and set the vibe for the night: young, fun and effortlessly cool.

After 17 years of helping mold Burberry into the brand that it is today, Bailey said goodbye with a daring range that will be talked about for years to come.

Bailey also brought back the iconic Nova Check (with a hint of the Rainbow Check detail) in a huge way. Many pieces from this Burberry London Fashion Week February collection are also unisex, a trend that reiterates the non-binary message now huge in the fashion world.

Bailey's final Burberry collection is already available to buy, including the Rainbow Leather High-Top Sneakers for £490.

Burberry said it would also be making donations to three gay rights charities: the Albert Kennedy Trust, the Trevor Project and ILGA (International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association). Sound off in the comments.
