Adele 'saved' for designer garb

Adele saved for three years to get a Burberry bag before she was famous.

The 23-year-old singer shot to fame after releasing her debut album 19 in 2008. The follow up, 21, topped charts across the world when it hit stores this year and Adele now regularly shops in high-end boutiques.

It wasn't always that way though, and she can still remember how thrilled she was when she got her first designer handbag.

"I remember saving for three years to get my first [Burberry] bag before I got signed. Five hundred quid, I think it was. Made of canvas, with the logo, like a satchel," she recalled.

The star has always had a soft spot for the British fashion house. She's met creative director Christopher Bailey and now hopes to regularly don the label on the red carpet.

"I've met Christopher a few times. He's definitely going to dress me for the next lot of awards - if I'm nominated. I've always loved Burberry," she told UK Vogue magazine.
