Bailey brought Burberry back to London Fashion Week this September after several years at Milan Fashion Week.
Picking up his award for the Designer of The Year category, Bailey said: “I am extremely pleased to announce that the Burberry Prorsum womenswear show will stay in London again this season and will be held during London Fashion Week in February. There was such an incredible energy during the 25th anniversary of London Fashion Week last September and we were very proud to be a part of this momentous celebration. London is our home and our global headquarters and we are thrilled to be showing again in this, our magnificent and creative city.”
Burberry also won Brand of The Year at the ceremony.
Bailey has previously won the Menswear Designer of The Year award in 2008 and 2007 and Designer of The Year in 2005. Last week, Bailey collected an MBE from the Queen for his services to the fashion industry.
