The important message behind Burberry's LFW show

Christopher Bailey dedicates his last Burberry collection to gay rights

Idris Elba and Kate Moss were among the celebrities at Burberry's London Fashion Week show as outgoing president Christopher Bailey presented his final collection for the fashion house.

As an army of 84 models walked the runway, swaths of rainbows in prints, dyes, and patterns punctuated the garments. (She's been turning to acting instead, which is no small thing.) But on Saturday, she was back in a big way: The model closed Burberry's London Fashion Week show wearing a rainbow cape in an homage to LGBTQ+ rights, and the look pretty much went viral immediately.

"My final collection here at Burberry is dedicated to - and in support of - some of the best and brightest organizations supporting LGBTQ youth around the world", he says.

The show took place in a large brick venue filled with bold swaying spotlights suspended from the ceiling created by United Visual Artists in collaboration with the brand, paired with giant prism rainbow lasers that displayed a handsome collage of colors while the models revealed the collection on the catwalk. This Burberry London Fashion week runway also came with a personal message from Bailey. Many pieces from this Burberry London Fashion Week February collection are also unisex, a trend that reiterates the non-binary message now huge in the fashion world.

Burberry said it would also be making donations to three gay rights charities: the Albert Kennedy Trust, the Trevor Project and ILGA (International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association). Sound off in the comments.
