Burberry Cancels Its SS23 Show Following Queen Elizabeth II’s Death
Burberry has made the decision to cancel its upcoming Spring/Summer 2023 show, following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
The British heritage brand shared in a statement,
“It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of Her Majesty The Queen. As a mark of respect, we have taken the decision to cancel our SS23 runway show due to take place on 17 September in London. We hope to see you in the near future.”
The news comes shortly after the British Fashion Council‘s announcement of rearranging fashion shows that were scheduled to take place on the day of the Queen’s funeral. Originally slated to happen from September 16 to 20, London Fashion Week will likely see changes in schedules with “non-core businesses” like parties being canceled.
Burberry is one of the first names to announce the cancellation of its SS23 presentation, while more brands will likely follow suit.
