London Fashion Week: Burberry's Catwalk 2013 Collection


It has been the hottest show in town at London Fashion Week for the past few seasons, with precious passes rationed like Willy Wonka's golden tickets and a star-studded front row to rival no other.

Last season, Burberry admirers were out in their droves to be part of the spectacle and the star-studded front row was occupied by Olivia Palermo, Suki Waterhosue, Andy Murray and Kim Sears, Victoria Pendleton, Dita von Teese, Dev Patel and Harry Styles.
The A-listers marveled at the hotly anticipated show, which saw model-of-the-moment Cara Delevingne lead the pack of metallic mac-clad models down the catwalk.
And this year's offering in Kensington Gardens looks set to be bigger and better than ever.

Last season saw elegant, long capes brought up to date in cream wool, midnight blue coated cotton or cropped; given balloon sleeves and paired with hot pants. But what could be in store for this season?
And after such a stellar year for the brand, which saw adorable Romeo Beckham fronting their spring/summer 13 campaign alongside Cara Delevingne and Edie Campbell, fans and fashion editors alike are excited to see what today's show will bring.


    It has been a busy eighteen months for creative director Christopher Bailey, who at the end of last year celebrated the opening of a new flagship store on London's Regent St - a four floor temple to Burberry he says offers the customer a 'living experience' of Burberry.com.
    At the same time as he was designing the Prorsum 2013 collection and he had Burberry London, eyewear, accessories and menswear on the go too.
