Christopher Bailey & Simon Woods

andrew potter
Christopher Bailey MBE (born May 11, 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. In 2009, he announced that he was in a relationship with British actor Simon Woods. On 31 August 2012 it was reported that Woods and Bailey had become engaged to be married.

Bailey, who was 38 in 2009, was born in Yorkshire, the son of a carpenter and a window dresser for Marks and Spencer. 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. 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. While in Milan, he met and began dating Geert Cloet, brand designer for Miu Miu. He split his time between his home in Milan and England. In 2004, Cloet was diagnosed with brain cancer. He and Bailey moved to Yorkshire to be near Bailey's family. Cloet died the next year. He joined Burberry in May 2001 as creative director and became chief creative director in November 2009. Bailey is credited with transforming the fortunes of the company. (Picture: Simon Woods)

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.

Simon Woods (born 1980) is an English actor best known for his role as Octavian in Season 2 of the British-American television series Rome and the 2005 Pride & Prejudice as Mr. Charles Bingley. He also recently starred as Dr Harrison in the BBC1 costume drama series Cranford, whose arrival in the village "sets female hearts racing."

He attended Eton College, then read English at Magdalen College, Oxford. While at Oxford, he was in a relationship with Rosamund Pike that lasted two years. Despite the break-up, the two later played lovers Jane Bennet and Charles Bingley in Pride & Prejudice.

After graduating from Oxford, Woods worked briefly at The Guardian before becoming an actor.
