Following the news that Burberry's CCO and President Christopher Bailey would be stepping down from the role after 17 years, British singer Adele has taken to Instagram to pay tribute to her friend and designer, who made her feel 'f*cking great' about wearing clothes.
Yesterday, the 29-year-old singer revealed Bailey's Burberry was the 'first major fashion house' to dress her and 'her big arse'.
She wrote: 'He is so enthusiastic about all British talent and he always collaborated with my insecurities to create outfits for me that have become a signature for me and made me feel f*cking great!' she wrote, having worn several of the designer's dresses during her recent world tour.
'Mate, you'll be missed but can't wait to see what you do next. Love x' she concluded the post.
Adele has long been a fan of the British fashion brand, having first worn the label to the Brit awards in 2012.
She then went on to wear one of the brand's midnight blue velvet gown to the 2012 Grammy Awards where she won an impressive six gongs.
For her '25' tour, which concluded earlier this year, the 'Hello' singer wore one singular statement gown designed by Bailey, reportedly inspired by one of his pre-fall 2016 designs.
The Daily Mail reports the designer and Adele's stylist Gaelle Paul first met to discuss the partnership in September 2015 and discussed the ideas of cloaks and detachable skirts for the tour.
Earlier this week it was announced Bailey was stepping down from his role at Burberry after almost 20 years.
The 46-year-old, who served as CCO from 2014 until July this year, will leave the British fashion house in March 2018.
