Last weekend, New York handed over the baton to London, and the Fashion Week began in the UK capital. The Burberry show is becoming one of the main events on it every year, and this time it attracted even more attention, because Ricardo Tishi, who replaced Christopher Bailey as creative director of the British fashion house, was to present his first collection in a new place.
Almost half a year ago, Tishi began work on this collection, and many speculated what he would bring and how to change the face of the brand. Before the Fashion Week in London, the media was discussing the first changes: Burberry had a new logo, a course was taken to abandon the use of natural fur.
The collection of the spring/summer season 2019 was shown in the south of the British capital – in the London postal center. The journalists arrived without delay and waited for the start of the fashion show in 20 minutes. During this time they managed to announce in social networks that there are no star guests in the first row of the show. The podium, not the ranks around it, has become a real center of the action.

And yet the show turned out to be really stellar: Kendall Jenner, Irina Sheik, Natalia Vodianova, Jordan Dann, Lily Donaldson and other stars of the world podium took part in the show.
This style reminds me of Italian neo-realistic films, of the 1960s tapes, for example, about “La Dolce Vita,” one of the journalists commented on the collection.
The show was divided into several parts, one of which, probably, was aimed at a less respectable and more democratic part of the buyers. Leather mini-skirts, dresses-combinations, hoodies and sports pants – nobody could reproach Ricardo Tishi in the absence of diversity.
