The British Fashion Council helped choose Quinn, who started his own label only in 2016, for the prize — also designed by Angela Kelly. The show was full of bright and bold looks that obviously drew the eye of the fashion elite, regardless of their eccentricity.
Spry as ever even at 91, she took a tour around several showrooms at the event before addressing the audience about Britain's fashion history.
“From the tweed of the Hebrides to Nottingham lace, and of course Carnaby Street, our fashion industry has been renowned for outstanding craftsmanship for many years, and continues to produce world-class textiles and cutting edge, practical designs,” she said.
Since this was the queen’s first time at London Fashion Week, social media swooned at her appearance.

Considering this is the first year the award is being presented, it stands to reason that the Queen may make another return next year. Only time will tell!
The Queen's fashionable showing comes just days after her Duchess Catherine's fashion choices were criticized by the public. Attendees of the BAFTA awards — equivalent to the Oscars — were encouraged to wear all black in support of the #MeToo and #TimesUp initiatives at this year's BAFTAs, but the pregnant royal's choice of a green cap-sleeved gown rubbed people the wrong way.
The Sun reports that people on the red carpet were just as disgruntled about the Duchess's fashion statement as social media users.
“She shouldn’t have bothered turning up if she couldn’t wear black,” one guest said, according to the paper.
Another reportedly added, “How is supporting equality for women political?”
Being a member of the royal family, Catherine is supposed to stay away from making any public political statements, which may have been one reason she opted for another color.
