Burberry's London to Shanghai celebration
A fashion and music show to mark the birth of a new flagship
As revealed yesterday by Buro 24/7 Middle East, Burberry announced a huge event in Shanghai, China to be held last night. British representatives of the heritage brand Cara Delevingne, Suki Waterhouse, Malaika Firth and Matilda Lowther joined forces on the red carpet before hitting the runway, accompanied by the eclectic sounds of British music star Paloma Faith. Prior to the show, Chinese models performed a Singing In The Rain style 'umbrella dance' for guests, which included Chinese actors Chen Kun and Angelbaby, model Du Juan and British actor Jamie Campbell. After the runway presentation, Cara Delevingne – surely the face of all faces amongst the very many Burberry models – was lifted up into the air like a modern day Mary Poppins, whilst confetti rained down on the crowd and a pretty serious party ensued.
