Rainbow, Lasers And LGBTQ-Tinged Checks For Christopher Bailey's Burberry Finale

Brunilde Fioravanti

(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. This season, however, is especially meaningful, as its Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey's final showcase after seventeen years at the helm of the brand.

'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, ' Bailey said in a press release that was written, appropriately, in rainbow coloured text. "There has never been a more important time to say that in our diversity lies our strength, and our creativity". In addition to the symbollic designs, the brand has made donations in undisclosed sums to three charities that support their cause: The Albert Kennedy Trust, The Trevor Project, and ILGA.

The London show itself was rife with true rainbow stripes as well as brightly colorful knits. There was a chunky sweater, floor-length skirts, and a grungy take on tailored trousers and jackets that has become so well-known with the brand.

While there was no live performance, models walked down the runway to eighties power-tracks, like "Don't Leave Me This Way" by The Communards.
