British fashion industry pays tribute to the Queen: Brands take part in salute to the late monarch

The fashion industry has paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth in a special show at The Fashion Awards in tribute to the late monarch.

On Monday night, the late monarch was celebrated in a section titled “the fashion salute show,” featuring British brands such as Alexander McQueen, Burberry and Christopher Kane.

Naomi Campbell presented a tribute to Queen Elizabeth on stage and models displayed works inspired by royalty on a circular catwalk in the center of London’s Royal Albert Hall.

As the designs were paraded around the room, images of the deceased monarch were displayed on a large screen in the hall, while musicians in ceremonial uniforms performed.

At the 2022 British Fashion Awards, the stars descended on London’s Royal Albert Hall on Monday, with celebrities such as Rita Ora, Lily James and Florence Pugh on the red carpet.

One of the most anticipated moments of the global fashion calendar, the British Fashion Awards celebrates fashion at the crossroads of culture and is a global entertainment platform for brands, creatives, designers, artists and tastemakers coming together to celebrate the industry.

The special show came after London Fashion Week fell within the national mourning period when Queen Elizabeth passed away on Sept. 8.

The annual event ran from September 15 to 20, with closing events scheduled for September 19, the day of the Queen’s state funeral, canceled or postponed.

The British Fashion Council said at the time that this week’s showcase should go ahead, but designers were asked to “respect the mood of the country and the period of national mourning by considering the timing of releasing their images.”

Some brands, including Burberry and Raf Simons, decided to cancel their September shows, while smaller fashion labels who couldn’t afford to pay tribute to the late monarch at the time.

Designer Harris Reed, whose clothes have been worn by Adele and Beyoncé, decided to continue his show to support the economy.

“It is crucial that we young designers stick together when big shows come along and make a statement with our clothes. We’re here, we’re together and we’re supporting the UK economy in that way,” he told the Independent at the time.

“Thriving through hard times was one of the late Queen’s trademarks,” said designer Mark Fast at the time. His brand continued with its debut show during fashion week.

Designer Bora Aksu added: “So much hard work goes into creating seasonal collections and I believe we will continue [and] showing our work will only help to maintain London’s reputation as one of the premier fashion capitals. I’m sure the Queen would have agreed and supported that.’

In 2018, the Queen sat next to Anna Wintour before presenting designer Richard Quinn with the first Queen Elizabeth II Award for British design at London Fashion Week.

Mr Quinn’s show was due to be shown on Monday 19 September, but was moved to the following day so that it would not take place on the same day as the late monarch’s funeral.
