Burberry celebrates London in LA and we can definitely say that Los Angeles is the latest trending place. From events, to shows, celebrities and more. It is all going down in LA. The city is undisputedly fast becoming the fifth fashion capital. It all started when Hedi Slimane set up his Saint Laurent office there. Other designers have recently flocked there too. Tom Ford presented his autumn/winter 2015 collection in LA, other brands including Christian Dior was set to show upcoming pre-collection as well.
The special one-off runway show named London in Los Angeles, featured Burberry’s autumn/winter 2015 new and exclusive collection. “The domed venue, which is more associated with space and science-related events, welcomed guests at sunset. It’s the first time a catwalk show has ever been staged there – and there is little Burberry likes more than being first – the show was premiered via the new live-streaming app, Periscope. Upon entering, British and American flags lined the winding road, while a helicopter circled above to film proceedings. Plants had been especially landscaped and gravel paths laid. One could be forgiven for thinking Burberry might have even had a hand in orchestrating the skies to turn from blue to pinky-orange-ombre just as the venue was filling with VIPs and celebrities including Elton John, January Jones, Cara Delevingne, Suki Waterhouse, Rosie Huntington Whiteley, Mario Testino, Victoria, David Beckham and family, and campaign stars, Jourdan Dunn and Naomi Campbell, who arrived in LA direct from Brazil, where Campbell hosted amFAR (her trick to beating jetlag? “Sleep on planes. And don’t eat the plane food”)”
“To work for such an established brand from your own country is a huge honour for me,” said the supermodel; Naomi Campbell, referring to the billboard campaign that looms large on Sunset Boulevard. “It was also the first time that I got to work with Jourdan who I’m a huge fan of and, of course, I’m always so impressed with everything Christopher does. He’s also the lovliest man.”
