Inside Burberry

Despite being a brand often remembered for it’s stable striped bags and trenchcoats, behind the doors of this incredible designer, there’s so much more to see. img_6771

At least for me, Soho is the place where you get truffle flavoured lasagne and matcha cakes. It’s the land of strange foods and night life, housing some pretty wacky stores and bars… and also, it turns out, Fashion Houses! (where you can also find food!)img_6774

Light was shining through the windows of the surprisingly quiet building, and it illuminated the beautiful capes displayed around on the ground floor. Not that much light was really needed for the beauty of these capes to show through though- you could tell instantly from a distance the intricacy and attention to detail that’s been given to these pieces. I only really began to grasp the genius of Burberry when I stood there, facing a hundred mannequins, absolutely speechless.

While being able to explore Burberry’s collection was an amazing opportunity in itself, there were more surprises in store- namely, a design workshop! I’ll spare you all the picture of mine- trust me, you don’t want to see that thing… I am literally the worst with glue and scisssors!

When asked about the best part of the collection, I’d shaken my head laughing “I can’t choose!”. And yet the stunning silver jewelled cape (pictured above) seemed to haunt me all the time I was walking around. When I finally stepped out of the Makers House, the sky was dark, and the lights twinkled back at me a pretty silver, just like the gems of that cape had. That’s when I knew.
