The British label was founded in the mid-19th century by 21-year-old Thomas Burberry as a store that sold outdoor garments and fabrics.

After establishing stores in London, the brand eventually evolved into a luxury label that focused heavily on developing it's tartan pattern on hand bags, outerwear and scarves.

Today, the company is worth nearly $2 billion and has stores in North America, Asia, Australia and Europe.

Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey has helped to rejuvenate the historic company, recruiting younger stars to advertise the brand - most notable is Emma Watson.

The company also has a strong social media presence on networking sites Facebook and Twitter.

At this year's London Fashion Week, the company broadcast their catwalk show by using 3D technology.
