    BURBERRY + THE NEW CRAFTSMEN

    Burberry and the New Craftsmen presented ‘A celebration of methods, materials and makers’ in the heart of Soho, London. The immersive exhibition showcased Burberry’s first direct-to-consumer collection, shown at London Fashion Week and some of Britain’s finest Craft Makers that helped bring the collection to life. There were Installations, demonstrations and performances taking place all week and all free to attend! Who needs to be sat in the FROW when you can get this up close and personal to Burberry’s latest collection.

    As you entered the little alley off Manette Street you were hit with the aroma of wonderful scented candles and Incense which opened out into a quaint courtyard filled with magnificent white sculptures amongst green foliage.
