Her Majesty presented the designer with a brand new award: the Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design. She accessorized with black gloves.
While on her "Joanne" tour, the stylish singer took to the stage in Quinn's oversize hot-pink floral coat - complete with the now-ubiquitous '80s shoulder pads.
When presenting the award to Quinn, the Queen was said to have called his work, "lovely".
Quinn, a graduate of Central Saint Martins school, has gained recognition for his striking prints and his collaboration with Liberty London.
"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". They have worked on designing an award to give recognition to emerging British fashion talent.
"I feel really overwhelmed, actually", Quinn told Elle UK of having the Queen at his show.
She was then introduced by Sarah Mower MBE, BFC Ambassador for Emerging Talent to a group of NEWGEN designers including Ben Cottrell, Charles Jeffrey, Grace Wales Bonner, Liam Hodges, Marta Jakubowski, Matthew Dainty, Michael Halpern, Nicholas Daley, Paula Knorr, Phoebe English, Richard Malone and Sadie Williams.
The council hailed Quinn's creation of a print studio, which offers accessible services to students.
The award has been devised by Angela Kelly, Personal Advisor to Her Majesty. Before the fashion crowd shipped off to Milan, it was joined by none other than Queen Elizabeth II for a final runway sendoff.
