We’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for Burberry, hence why we have very big grins on our faces after learning that is has now become a billion Pound business.
The British brand now joins the likes of Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Prada in the billion Pound club, after having reached a remarkable £1 billion worth of sales in the space of six months.
“We are the only global luxury goods brand from Britain,” Stacey Cartwright, a spokesperson for Burberry said. “We are unique and we are balanced across clothing and leather goods.
“Our other difference is our focus on digital. Shoppers can buy straight from the catwalk with iPads in stores and we now have more than 12 million Facebook fans.”
We think Christopher Bailey’s fine work also has something to do with it too. Looking forward to what else Burberry has in store for us in the coming months; we predict big things!
