Christopher Bailey Appointed Burberry Chief Creative Officer

Congrats to Christopher Bailey! Well done:-) In recognition of Christopher Bailey's outstanding contribution to the brand, Burberry has promoted him from Creative Director to a newly created position of Chief Creative Officer. I must say under Christopher's direction and vision, Burberry has grown strength to strength and took the brand's creativity and brand presence to new levels of success. He totally deserved the new title.

"It is with great pride and honour that we announce Christopher's new position of Chief Creative Officer. The Burberry brand today is more cohesive than at anytime in the company's history owing much to the clarity, consistency and purity of his amazing vision. This past nine years, Christopher has innovated, protected and modernised every aspect of this company giving it an identity and point of view that is completely unrivalled. His vision has united everyone in the company and he has connected with every demographic of consumers through technology, innovation, unique craftsmanship and integrity. Whoever you meet, whatever you read they will all tell you the same thing - Christopher Bailey is this generation’s greatest talent and he does it all with the most unassuming humility."

“I am truly honoured and humbled to be recognised in this way. It is a real privilege to be a part of the brand’s great story and to be working alongside Angela whose passion and drive is not only inspiring to me, but is central to everything that we do as a company. I salute all our Burberry teams around the world who make this magnificent brand what it is today - a place of uncompromising energy and innovation. I couldn’t be more excited about being part of the future of this, the greatest British brand in the world.”

Of course, part of the reason why I had to post this is becos of the new pics of Christopher which is a treat for the eyes:-p
