Christopher Bailey (b. 1971, West Yorkshire, England) is Chief Creative Officer of Burberry, and is responsible for the company’s overall image including all advertising, corporate art direction, store design and visuals as well as the design of all Burberry collections and product lines.

Bailey, who was 38 in 2009,[1] was born in Yorkshire, the son of a carpenter and a window dresser for Marks and Spencer.[2] He graduated from the Royal College of Art with a Masters degree in 1994 and later received an honorary fellowship from the College in 2004.[3] From 1994 to 1996 he was the Womenswear Designer at Donna Karan and Senior Designer of Womenswear at Gucci in Milan from 1996 to 2001. He joined Burberry in May 2001 as creative director and became chief creative director in November 2009.[2][4] Bailey is credited with transforming the fortunes of the company.[2]

In 2008, Bailey, alongside Burberry CEO Angela Ahrendts, set up The Burberry Foundation, committed to dedicating global resources to help young people realise their dreams and achieve their goals and potential through their power and creativity. The Burberry Foundation invests in select charities focused on supporting young people in the key cities in regions where the majority of Burberry employees live and work, and where they are able to participate in volunteer roles with Burberry charity partners on the ground.

Bailey also oversaw the design and development of the new 160,000-square-foot (15,000 m2) Burberry Global Headquarters at Horseferry House in London and the newly opened 68,000-square-foot (6,300 m2) Burberry Americas US Headquarters at 444 Madison in New York.
