[ Prosrum – Forward ]
London-based luxury fashion house Burberry was founded in 1856 by Thomas Burberry, who invented — a breathable, waterproof and hard-wearing fabric — named gabardine, which was created with the intention to protect people from the British weather. Renowned for its exquisite design, fine craftsmanship and its iconic vintage check pattern, Burberry releases iconic collections, alongside a vision for fashion-forward pieces, inspirational runway shows and other ready-to-wear outerwear. Today, the London-based brand is under the creative direction of Italian fashion designer Riccardo Tisci who had previously worked at Givenchy and introduced a new ‘TB’ monogram all over the label’s recent collections. Burberry‘s motto — “Prorsum” (Latin for “forward”) has motivated the company into one of the most technologically advanced fashion brands of our time.
