Party People: Celebs at the Burberry Show at LFW 2014
London’s runway saw a fashionable parade by the pretty ‘Bloomsbury Girls’, connoting Burberry’s Prorsum womenswear Autumn/Winter 2014 collection. Inspired by the beautiful decorative British art of the Bloomsbury set and Charleston, the country home and meeting hub for writers, painters and intellectuals alike who formed the group, you can tell the designs are very creative and artistically inclined.
Cameo pink, bright olive, elderberry and blackcurrent-coloured relaxed trench coats, ponchos, cabans and blanket coats comprised the collection, made out of English woven cotton gabardine, hand-painted leather, suede and shearling. The Bloomsbury Bag stood out with its hand-painted artworks, rug motifs and an eclectic patchwork of textiles and embellishments.
The show also marked Burberry’s partnership on a project with the Charleston Trust, to help protect the cultural and creative heritage of Charleston for the people.
Spotted on the front row were celebrities such as Bradley Cooper, Kangana Ranaut, Tinie Tempah, Harry Styles, Anna Wintour and more
