BURBERRY SEPTEMBER COLLECTION FASHION SHOW
MAKERS HOUSE, LONDON
HAPPENINGS: Unlike the usual set-up for a fashion show, Burberry presented its straight-to-consumer debut at a new venue called Makers House. In collaboration with The New Craftsmen, skilled artisans were booked to showcase the different techniques used to create the fashion collection – think tassels and embroideries. The celebrity turnout included Chinese actress-turned-filmmaker Zhao Wei, pop singer and actor Kris Wu, as well as Hong Kong lyricist and style maven Wyman Wong. We also spotted celebrity model-actress Cara Delevingne sporting a revealing dress to flaunt her unique body art – a black line running from her neck to her belly button. A 21-piece orchestra provided live music for the show, joined by pianist Rosey Chan. The music was specifically composed for the occasion. All the guests received a copy of the novel Orlando, which inspired the fashion collection.
OVERHEARD The see-now-buy-now trend is really dangerous for shopaholics.
