1 Case Study Part 1 BRANDING BURBERRY Burberry, the clothing company, was founded in 1856 by 21 year old Thomas Burberry, an apprentice draper. Drapers made cloth and sold fabrics and dry goods. Burberry began making outdoor wear for local residents in rainy Basingstock, England. In 1880, he invented a waterproof wool fabric called gabardine, which become one of the materials for Burberry’s most fashion creation—the trench coat. In 1920, Burcerry registered a signature plaid pattern for wool, which would become the standard lining for the Burberry trench coat.For the next 80 years, Burberry plaid was seen inside the trench coat of the English elite. The Burberry label came to represent old English fashion—and old ideas. By 1990s, this image began to limit Burberry’s appeal and market. So in 1997, a new marketing team, led by New Yorker Rose Marie Bravo, set out to revitalize the brand.
