But never fear Bailey is here and as he joined the brand as Design Director in 2001 a current of change began to stir and by 2004 as he took over as Creative Director the brand was in the midst of a fully fledged transformation.
His talent choices, design direction and collaborations are second to none. The first time I noticed Cara Delevingne was in a Burberry campaign. Again this year Burberry was the highlight of London Fashion Week and again the show stired me on an emotional level.
I mean Suki Waterhouse closed the show and Kate Moss was Cara Delevingne's date, how could you not want to cry tears of joy.
