The Queen of England Made an Appearance at London Fashion Week — Surprise

London Fashion Week 2018 features adult dresses

Dressed in a pale blue suit, Her Majesty took in the show while seated alongside fashion royalty, Anna Wintour.

Mary Katrantzou's London Fashion Week show was interrupted last night by an anti-fur protester shouting, "Shame on you for supporting this", before being escorted off the runway.

The Queen Elizabeth II Award aims to provide continuing recognition of the cultural and trade role the British design and fashion industry has played, and continues to play, throughout Her Majesty's reign. The award is presented to one British designer annually, who boasts incredible talent, in addition to services to the community and sustainable practices.

Quinn, a graduate of Central Saint Martins school, has gained recognition for his striking prints and his collaboration with Liberty London.

The queen's visit followed a Buckingham Palace fashion reception hosted Monday night by Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge - who is expecting her third child in April - and Sophie, the Countess of Wessex.

Richard Quinn, recognised for his exceptional bold prints, won the award.

She took in the colourful Richard Quinn catwalk show. While the event was truly iconic with the Queen's surprise appearance, Wintour has landed in hot water for leaving her signature sunglasses on while seated next to the monarch. "We only found out a few days ago [that the Queen was coming] so we added in a few Queen touches with the headscarves and the scarf patterns".

The queen has a history of looking unimpressed in public, and Quinn's fashion show was no exception.

The award was designed by Kelly, the woman who has crafted the Queen's style for the past 26 years.

She also toured showrooms before presenting the award on the final day of fashion week, which brought hundreds of designers, buyers and journalists to London for a series of catwalk displays highlighted by Christopher Bailey's farewell show at Burberry.
