The year of Bailey
Did you ever think that the designer of Burberry would be designer of the year about a year ago? Not while it was being made fake and worn by chavs. But you really have to respect Christopher Bailey for turning Burberry completely on it's head.
The Chief Creative Officer has even managed to turn Burberry into the winner of Brand of the Year at the British Fashion Awards. He is responsible for so much with the brand, the design of all Burberry collections and products, as well as all advertising, corporate art direction, architectural design, multi-media content and overall brand image for Burberry. I think it's incredible what he's done, and he's definitely deserving of the award! However can we really expect any more from him? After all he's done is there anything left that he can do? He saved what could be considered a previously dying brand, is there anything he can't do? He even has an MBE now!
