Adele to design for Burberry?
Adele has been approached by Burberry for a ''plus-size collaboration.''
The 'Someone Like You' singer is in talks with the British fashion house's chief, Christopher Bailey, about creating a line after he personally wrote to her and helped design her outfits during this year's awards season.
Christopher is reportedly hoping Adele - who is set to give birth to her first child with husband Simon Konecki later this month - and her stylist Gaelle Paul will team with the brand to create bespoke designs for stylish, curvy women.
A source told the Daily Mail newspaper: ''Adele has always had an interest in fashion and Christopher is keen to get her involved because she knows exactly what suits her and likes to be involved in the creative process.
''He invited her to come to the studio with Gaelle and together they collaborated on creating dresses for the awards season with her.
''Adele was hands-on with her dress for the BRITs, and she did the same for her gown at the Grammys. There could well be a plus-size collaboration in the future.''
Adele, 24, has previously said how much she loved Burberry's designs and had become friends with Christopher.
She said last year: ''I love old school. Chanel, Prada, you know. And Burberry, definitely. I've met Christopher Bailey a few times.
''I've always loved Burberry. I remember saving for three years to get my first bag before I got signed.
''Five hundred quid, I think it was, made of canvas with the logo like a satchel.''
It is also rumoured Adele could help on the Burberry Acoustic project, which showcases young British music talent.
