#TBT – BURBERRY PRORSUM SHOW AW2011.
ITS FIVE YEARS AGO SINCE I WORKED ON THIS SHOW, AND ONE OF THE FEW OCCASIONS WHEN WE CREATED A DIFFERENT KIND OF HAIR LOOK FOR THE BURBERRY SHOW ITSELF, AS IT WAS NORMALLY ALWAYS A TAKE ON A SIMILAR THEME.
OUR HAIR AND MAKE-UP TEST MODEL WAS NONE OTHER THAN CARA DELEVINGNE……. SHE WAS STILL ESTABLISHING HERSELF AS A MODEL AT THIS POINT. IT WAS HER FIRST EVER APPEARANCE IN THE BURBERRY SHOW TOO. I REMEMBER HER BEING SO NERVOUS. THE FOLLOWING SEASON SHE WENT ON TO OPEN AND CLOSE THE SHOW AS HER CAREER BEGAN TO BLOSSOM.
The show took place in the shadow of the Albert Memorial in Kensington Gardens, the same week Burberry took 13th place on Fast Company‘s list of the world’s most innovative companies.
Former model for Burberry Jean Shrimpton was Christopher Bailey’s inspiration for the show, hence the 60’s vibe of the hair…..
Below are images of Cara we took once the hair and make up was approved plus a link to the actual show if you wish to take a look.
It was the first season that the divine Jourdan Dunn opened the show too…… now another little British superstar model.
Later in the year we replicated some of this show mixed with amazing holograms in Beijing to launch Burberry opening their first store in China. Below is also a link of an edited version of the hologram show in Beijing.
