| Christoper Bailey took a final bow at London Fashion Week in his last Burberry show. He not only transformed Burberry; he transformed fashion as we know it.
Bailey basically invented the see-now-buy-now model and popularised instagrammable fashion and live streaming straight from the runway, while re-inventing the classic Burberry check from chav to chic, and unforgettably rounding up an unbeatable posse British supermodels: Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Cara Delevingne and Sienna Miller.
As the undoubtedly talented creative director leaves the London label for pastures new – and to spend more time with his husband and two young daughters- lets look back on some of his most iconic Burberry moments.
