Happy Burberry Day!

burberry4wtmk.jpg picture by johnsimondailyThe time was 9:23pm, and the temperature was 57 degrees last Thursday as Angela Ahrendts (Chief Executive Officer) and Christopher Bailey (Creative Director) of fashion brand Burberry celebrated the lighting of the new signage on top of the Burberry USA Headquarters. The illuminating enormous neon logo lite up the New York Skyline, 400 feet above the street and of course we were their to witness it all. A-listers Orlando Bloom, Claire Danes, Helena Christianson, Molly Sims, Rose McGowen, Justin Long, Blake Lively, Penn Badgley, Carla Gugino, and Harry Connick Jr filled the 55th-story rooftop terrace of the ultra chic and classy  New York Palace Hotel on Madison avenue. Alexa Chung was the DJ of the evening, spinning some of our favorite classics while guests sipped on delicious cocktails and dined on British canapés like smoked salmon and shepherd’s pie.

British band, One Night Only lead the countdown to the illumination of the new Burberry sign which also featured a flurry of smoke and confetti, followed by a live performance of some of their greatest hits. It made the perfect backdrop for the band and the ending to a spectacular evening.

Cheers to Burberry!
