Shoes & Accessories - - The Month That Was | Updates I International -

Af­ter 16 years at Burberry, Christopher Bai­ley is leav­ing Bri­tain’s largest lux­ury fash­ion brand. The com­pany an­nounced that Bai­ley, pres­i­dent and chief creative of­fi­cer, would re­sign at the end of 2018.

“As Burberry be­gins the next decade of its jour­ney, Christopher has con­cluded that af­ter 17 years, it will be the right time for him to pur­sue new creative projects. Christopher will re­main pres­i­dent and chief creative of­fi­cer un­til 31 March 2018, when he will step down from the board. He will pro­vide his full sup­port to chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Marco Gob­betti and the team on the tran­si­tion un­til 31 De­cem­ber 2018,” the brand said in a state­ment.

Bai­ley said: “It has been the great priv­i­lege of my work­ing life to be at Burberry, work­ing along­side and learn­ing from such an ex­tra­or­di­nary group of peo­ple over the last 17 years. Burberry en­cap­su­lates so much of what is great about Bri­tain. As an or­ga­ni­za­tion, it is creative, in­no­va­tive and out­ward-look­ing. I do truly be­lieve, how­ever, that Burberry’s best days are still ahead of her and that the com­pany will go from strength to strength with the strat­egy we have de­vel­oped and the ex­cep­tional tal­ent we have in place led by Marco.”
