Burberry up after debut of collection

BURBERRY shares rose yesterday in a boost fuelled by a positive reaction to its new collection unveiled at London Fashion Week.

The stock was up around 3.7 per cent after images from the luxury retailer’s catwalk show – attended by the likes of actresses Sienna Miller and Gemma Arterton – were beamed across the world.

The show was held in Hyde Park and was touted as a return to tradition by Christopher Bailey, Burberry’s creative director. The Burberry trench coat has been among the products helping to fuel a string of sales rises, with Asian demand proving particularly strong.
