The Beatles & The Best Of British Designers

Today's post was inspired by last night's Grammy salute to The Beatles.
The celebration of their 50th Anniversary tour in America, and debut on The Ed Sullivan Show, had me on my feet. Four bobbed British boys took the stage in skinny pants and pointy toe shoes.  The world has never been the same, and neither has British fashion design.

Here: Five Featured Top British Designers 

Molton Brown (US)

Nothing is more iconic Brit than Burberry.  Established in 1856 by Thomas Burberry, who also invented "gabardine" in 1880.  The Burberry Trench Coat was designed as practical wear to be worn in the trenches by officers in World War I.  Today, we still equate the trench with Burberry, just today, it is updated in python, calfskin, patent leather or cowhide.

ISSA London
This London based label was launched in 2003 by Brazilian born Daniella Helaye. It’s an irresistible mix that’s won over an A-list following including Kiera Knightley, Jennifer Lopez and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and my own daughter for a very special interview.
