A Closer Look: Burberry

Established: 1856
Founder: Thomas Burberry
Headquarters: London
Creative Director: Christopher Bailey

The Burberry brand was established in 1856 by a 21 year old Thomas Burberry who went on to invent 'garbardine' fabric in 1879. A tightly woven, light, breathable and weatherproof fabric that revolutionised rainwear thus creating the Burberry trench - one of the worlds most iconic coats. The trench coat was initially developed to serve the needs of the military in the early 20th Century and was the outfitter of choice for several polar explorers such as Sir Ernest Shackleton, as the garbardine fabric made it well suited to cope in in-hospital conditions.

Now under the creative direction of Christopher Bailey since 2009, Burberry has become one of the worlds most luxurious brands. Its constant modernisation and groundbreaking seasonal runway shows maintain its history, yet generates constant growth, reputation and achievement.
