CHRISTOPHER BAILEY’S COLLEGIATE STYLE: Not content with winning plaudits from the fashion world, it seems Christopher Bailey also has the dreaming spires of academia in his thrall. On Friday, Bailey, chief creative officer of Burberry, will receive an honorary doctorate from Yorkshire’s Sheffield Hallam University, in recognition of his services to the fashion industry and his charitable work in the U.K. It will add to Bailey’s existing honorary doctorates, given by universities including his alma mater the University of Westminster and the University of Huddersfield, Yorkshire and an honorary fellowship from London’s Royal College of Art, where Bailey graduated with a master’s degree in 1994.
And the honor follows Bailey’s appearance last week at Oxford University’s storied debating society, the Oxford Union. Bailey’s conversation with the 450 students attending covered everything from his upbringing in Yorkshire to his thus far 10-year career at Burberry. Bailey joins a list of fashion names including Tom Ford, Diane von Furstenberg, Anna Wintour and Roberto Cavalli who have addressed the Oxford Union.
