Ms Rush also spoke from the runway, saying of the Queen: "Throughout your reign you have embraced fashion, using its power of diplomacy to communicate understanding between cultures and nations".

The honor of her presence-the first ever, according to reports-was bestowed upon designer Richard Quinn, who was receiving the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award For British Design at his Fall 2018 show.
"As a tribute to the industry, and as my legacy to all those who have contributed to British fashion, I would like to present this award for new, young talent".
It seems Quinn fits the bill perfectly. The 31-year-old started his own label in 2016 and has made a name for himself on the fashion circuit after graduating from Central Saint Martins with his masters the same year.

After the show, the Queen said it had been a "great pleasure" to attend the show and presented Quinn with the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design, honouring the innovative designer as the UK's brightest new fashion talent. "I would like to thank the British Fashion Council for selecting the first victor: Richard Quinn".
