Video & Interview -Backstage at Burberry Prorsum

Video filmed and edited by me...

Congratulations on the show and congratulations on your MBE…
Oh, thank you very much
How are you feeling after the show?
I am feeling very good, I am literally running to London tonight because I am moving tomorrow morning, so there is a lot going on, but it’s a lot of fun.
What was the starting point for designing this collection, did you have a type of man in mind or a character or theme you were designing for?
Not really a character, I liked the idea of starting the show with rain and ending on sunshine, so I started with the waxed coats and quilted jackets, and ending all all the soft pastel colours, I wanted it to end in a really joyous way
The colours were a real strong point, as well as the pastels you showed primary colours in the sportswear pieces…
I wanted to intersect the whole show with Burberry Sport label which I launched about 9 months ago. I am just so excited about it, it just felt like the right moment to do something on the runway for it, with all the bright reds and cobalt blues.
So will you be pushing the sport element a bit more?
Yes, its something I love and I have got a big exciting project I am working on at the moment and launching next year.
