New York City Mayor Bloomberg has declared today Burberry Day in NYC.

With the city gearing up for tonight's ultra-exclusive Burberry party, to celebrate the unveiling of a set of new Burberry lights on top of Burberry's new American HQ on Madison Avenue, Mayor Bloomberg decided to get in on the action and declare the entire day Burberry Day!

'We are all so excited about Madison Avenue. It's such an iconic building which we feel is the perfect new home for Burberry in America and will be another huge chapter in our rich history,' creative director Christopher Bailey said. 'The aesthetic mirrors our new global headquarters in London and really emphasises to our American consumer the modern expression of the brand  - a balance of what we have always stood for, what we represent today and where we are going.'

Check back tomorrow to see all the party pictures or, while you're waiting, watch the video below to see the Burberry sign being installed.
