Burberry Lights Up Manhattan

The Burberry sign has officially joined the Manhattan skyline. Installation of the five-foot high Burberry lettering was lit up last week to mark the opening of the Burberry Headquarters at 444 Madison Avenue, New York, New York. To Burberry’s opening, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said that "by placing its new headquarters for the Americas in midtown Manhattan and opening new stores here, Burberry is investing in the future of New York City, a worldwide hub for retail and fashion." Plus, Burberry promised half a million dollars to be donated to the Robin Hood Foundation, to support public education and job training for underprivileged New Yorkers.  As thanks to the British-based design house, Bloomberg gave Burberry an official "Burberry Day." To cap "Burberry Day" off, a party at the Palace Hotel followed the signage light-up. Stars and Manhattan socialites showed up to celebrate Burberry in Manhattan. In attendance, decked in Burberry was Orlando Bloom, Penn Badgley, Justin Long, Blake Lively,  and Claire Danes. Burberry’s new campaign and revamped designs will keep the classic name in tact. If the name fits then wear it and, with that, we officially say welcome to Manhattan!
