BUCKINGHAM BAILEY: Christopher Bailey, Burberry’s chief creative officer, made a visit to Buckingham Palace Friday to receive his Member of the Order of the British Empire honor from Queen Elizabeth II. “I am both honored and humbled,” said Bailey, who was named an MBE as part of this year’s Queen’s birthday honors list for his services to the fashion industry. “This award also recognizes the incredible team that I work with, and it is a privilege to be a part of Burberry, a great British brand.” Bailey’s parents watched the designer receive the honor, and later that day, Bailey celebrated with his family over lunch. But while the MBE ranks high as an accolade, it isn’t the only nod Bailey has been given of late: Earlier this week, the designer was made an honorary patron of Dublin’s Trinity College’s Philosophical Society, which has been a forum for the discussion of artistic and aesthetic ideas for more than 300 years. Bailey also holds an honorary fellowship from the Royal College of Art and honorary doctorates from both the University of Huddersfield and the University of Westminster.
