Yesterday the news of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II passing was announced. Her Majesty, the UK’s longest-reigning monarch, died at home in Balmoral in Scotland, and upon the news, a pair of double rainbows were spotted over Buckingham Palace.
While many British fashion houses and retailers have added a Memoriam for the Queen to pay tribute, Burberry has also announced it will no longer show its Spring/Summer 2023 show which was slated to take place on September 17th, “as a mark of respect.”
The Queen was a longtime supporter of British fashion and, in 2018, was hosted at London Fashion week to launch the QEII Award for British Design. This award recognized design excellence and positive impact.
Over her long reign and years of service, Queen Elizabeth II was also known for her bright and effortless style, joy for life, and passion for supporting causes near and dear to her heart. Brands including Launer London (her preferred handbag brand), Burberry, Mulberry, Hunter, and many more have placed full home page notes with beautiful images of the Queen on their sites.
May she rest in peace.
