The rise of the "travelling luxury consumer" has helped Burberry to solid third-quarter sales figures, the fashion brand will tell the market in a trading update on Tuesday.

Analysts have predicted total sales growth up 18-20 per cent with sales for the quarter forecast to be close to £569m.

But like-for-like retail sales growth could be slightly down on last year at around 15 per cent.

The company's 10 million Facebook friends are testament to its growing social media presence – it released images from the catwalk yesterday on a Twitter "tweetwalk".
