Goodbye Burberry – On Saturday night guests entered the west London venue to the chants and screeches of fur protesters who came out in even larger numbers than last season and entered a vast and largely vacant brick venue where the designer’s guests and friends were gathering to watch his last show for the brand.
The collection was meant to be a support to the LGBT community.
“I’m proud and sad ” said Sienna Miller, who starred in Burberry’s 2016 Christmas campaign, a short film that also featured Dominic West. “All the Burberry girls had to be here tonight.” They came out in force: Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Keira Knightley and Naomi Watts joined Michelle Dockery, Naomie Harris, Lily James and Daphne Guinness.
Chelsea Clinton, who is best friends with Bailey’s husband Simon Woods, sat in the friends and family section. “It was Simon who brought Christopher into our lives and we’re so thankful for that. There was nowhere else we wanted to be tonight” said Clinton, who was accompanied her husband Marc Mezvinsky.
