Burberry Champions LGBTQ+ communities as part of their AW18 Collection

FLYING the rainbow flag with pride, Christopher Bailey is using his final collection at Burberry as a platform to champion the LGBTQ+ communities. Bailey’s decision to incorporate the six symbolic colours of the pride flag into the signature Burberry check will be a prominent feature in their AW18 collection at London Fashion Week, and is set to cement Burberry’s commitment to the LGBTQ+ community.

Christoper Bailey, Burberry’s President and Chief Creative officer said, “My final collection here at Burberry is dedicated to – and in support of – some of the best and brightest organisations supporting LGBTQ+ youth around the world. There has never been a more important time to say that in our diversity lies our strength, and our creativity.”

To further the support of the LGBTQ+ community, Burberry has been announced that the brand has also donated money to charities focusing on broadening awareness, mentoring and resources of the community. The three charities – the Albert Kennedy Trust, the Trevor Project and ILGA – are dedicated to helping the needy in both the UK and abroad.
