The city of Beverly Hills and the Rodeo Drive Committee awarded the iconic British brand Burberry, with the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style Award on Wednesday, Nov.19th in Beverly Hills and I was there!! It was a blast finally getting to meet Christopher Bailey and Mario Testino face to face.
The awards that was created in 2003, celebrates brands that contribute to the world of fashion and entertainment. Since then, brands like Tom Ford, Valentino, Armani and others have been awarded. Fashion icons like Diana Vreeland, Salvatore Ferragamo and Princes Grace of Monaco, also received posthumous honoring during previous events.
On Wednesday, Mario Testino presented the award for Burberry, significant contribution to Christopher Bailey, who at first watched the commotion from the roof of a new Burberry store across the street at Rodeo Drive. Christopher was appointed as Chief Creative and Chief Executive Officer, by the former CEO Rose Marie Bravo. Since he joined the company, Burberry became more and more progressive, and focused in the future.
A party to celebrate the achievement was held on the Penthouse above the new store, and meeting Testino and Bailey was very exciting. Christopher seems to be a very simple, down to earth, and pleasant person, while Mario seems amusing and out going.
So, from now on Burberry is not only on our wish list, but it is also embedded into the sidewalks of Rodeo drive! One of the most famous shopping destinations in the world…
But take a look on the pictures that I got…
