Just a week ago, Tuesday night was spent at the recently renovated Burberry store at Chadstone – The Fashion Capital! I was lucky enough to be invited to join a private cocktail event to celebrate the opening of Burberry’s newly expanded Chadstone store and a sneak peak at the arrival of the exclusive-to-Australia ‘Tales of a Trench Coat’ in-store experience. It was a beautiful night accompanied by champagne and delicious canapés, but most importantly an archive display of vintage Burberry Trench Coats from 2005 to present. My favourite one was definitely the Gold embroidered trench coat with tasseled epaulets from 2005 – you’ll see a close up down below! Throughout the night I was walked through the history of the classic Trench Coats, a piece of clothing that was never foreseen to be an iconic fashion staple and was initially developed for the military. Believe it or not, I was told that there is about 70 individual parts / pieces that is needed to put together this sleek, structured and classic Burberry Trench. You will be able to see below the design table that displays the main parts of a Burberry Trench and all the tools required. It was a great event to attend, meeting new people and many influencers! Looking forward to the store opening on Collins Street in Melbourne!
