On Saturday at London Fashion Week, Burberry will reveal its new collection featuring a rainbow plaid that the company says celebrates LGBTQ communities. They've also announced support for three LGBTQ charities.
"My final collection here at Burberry is dedicated to - and in support of - some of the best and brightest organisations supporting LGBTQ+ youth around the world," says Burberry chief creative officer Christopher Bailey who is leaving the company after 17 years. "There has never been a more important time to say that in our diversity lies our strength, and our creativity."
From the BBC News:
The Albert Kennedy Trust is being helped by the fashion house. It works to support young homeless LGBT people in the UK.
It says it's overjoyed to be receiving a generous donation from the brand - saying it will make a big difference to them.
"This announcement gives voice to a large and influential community about the importance of raising awareness of LGBT youth homelessness," it added.
The International, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association is also being helped by Burberry.
The third charity receiving funding is The Trevor Project - a US organisation that works to prevent suicide among the LGBT community and young people questioning their sexuality.
