The Queen of England attended her first ever fashion show this past week. The show was for Richard Quinn and his Fall 2018 collection.
The Queen wasn’t there just to be stunned by magnificent fashion designs but rather to hand out the first ever Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design. It’s meant to highlight the role that the fashion industry plays in society and diplomacy. It recognizes young artistic and entrepreneurial talent.
Richard Quinn may not be a recognizable name, but what he has accomplished is far from average. Between winning fashion awards from H&M and being the recipient of part of the Sarahslist (which highlights the talent of designers), he has also been giving back to his community. Many companies referred to him as “one to watch” last year.
Quinn ultimately delivered a unique show with his tendency to cover the models’ faces, but nonetheless, he did enough to capture the attention of many, including the Queen of England.
