Whilst he puts the finishing touches to Burberry’s spring/summer 2013 collection to be showed during London Fashion Week next month, it seems designer Christopher Bailey is going to be busier than ever, as he also has a wedding to plan.
Burberry’s chief creative officer will marry long-term boyfriend, actor and writer Simon Woods, in an intimate civil ceremony in London in late September, according to the Daily Mail.
The wedding caps a triumphant few years for the Burberry designer – who has scooped numerous Designer of the Year awards and was honoured with an MBE – who suffered heartbreak in 2005 when his then-boyfriend, Miu Miu’s brand director Geert Cloet, died of brain cancer.
The 40-year-old Yorkshireman met 32-year-old Woods back in 2009.
Fireworks Night, or Guy Fawkes Night, is a British tradition going back to the 1605 Gunpowder Plot, in which Catholic conspirator Fawkes attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament.
