They come from the film, fashion, food, art, design, sport, media, music, digital and business worlds, and together these 30 influencers have created a piece of iconic Middle Eastern memorabilia. Over a series of months, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Los Angeles and London played perfect portrait backdrops as Burberry's Art of the Trench came to life through a series of photographs.
