Burberry was established in 1856, and has since expanded with a true focus on the British heritage of craftsmanship, innovation and design.
Today, the brand is based in London and is led by Chief Creative and Chief Executive Officer, Christopher Bailey. The brand is known globally for its functionality and unique British sensibility. Burberry invented the weatherproof fabric gabardine, which was then patented by Thomas Burberry. Following this, the iconic trench coat was designed – one of the brand's most recognisable designs.
