All eyes were on Burberry and creative director Christopher Bailey Monday night as London Fashion Week reached its starry climax. Bailey didn't disappoint, drawing on the sculptor Henry Moore for inspiration in a startling new collection that built on the English heritage brand's traditional appeal.BURBERRY CONTINUES TO MINE BRITAIN'S ARTISTIC HERITAGE No fashion house pays as much attention to English heritage as Burberry, which paid homage to the late English sculptor Henry Moore with the autumn and winter collection unveiled to a packed house Monday night.Bailey said he sought to make the clothes three-dimensional and textured much like Moore's sculptures – which look smooth from a distance but are actually textured and detailed when viewed up close.He told the Associated Press he used the color palette that Moore wore when he worked and pointed proudly to one of Moore's striped work aprons on display behind glass at the Burberry Makers House in London's Soho neighborhood.Bailey said the sculptural shapes of the collection were taken from Moore, as was the lacing he used on many pieces.The music, the sculptures and the evocative collection justified Burberry's status as a London fashion fixture.
