Kate Middleton is demonstrating a passion for fashion in a sleek monochrome outfit.

On Wednesday, the Duchess of Cambridge arrived at London’s Design Museum to present The Queen Elizabeth II Award to an emerging designer for British Design. The annual award, which will be handed out at an event hosted by the British Fashion Council, recognizes the role the fashion industry plays in society. It’s usually presented by a senior member of the royal family to a designer who displays both originality and a commitment to their community.

For the occasion, Kate wore a textured, dark teal midi dress from Canadian designer Edeline Lee. The unique piece includes dropped shoulders with a hanging tie detail, a large belt buckle cinching the waist, and a flared skirt. She accessorized with a pair of statement gold earrings from Nadia Irena and matching emerald green pumps and a clutch bag from Emmy London.

This year, British-Guyanan designer Saul Nash took home the Queen Elizabeth II Award, according to WWD.

Nash—a menswear designer and professional choreographer who focuses on using techniques that elevate “movement, fluidity, and function” in his apparel, per his website—also recently won the 2022 Woolmark Prize, which honors designers for their use of Australian Merino wool.

“Words cannot describe what this means to me,” Nash said after being named the winner. “In such a short space if time I am so grateful for what I have gained in the past eight months. This really is the cherry on top for everything Woolmark has done for me.”
