Jubilee tribute from Katherine Hooker

As Great Britain and possibly the world, are getting ready to raise a toast to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and her Diamond Jubilee, many creative people want to pay their own tribute to an extraordinary woman and a truly inspirational and hard-working Queen.

KHJubilee

Katherine Hooker designed a Jubilee Jacket that is tailored in an all-season, off-white linen blend. It has navy blue buttons, is trimmed with navy blue suede alcantara and has an understated Union Jack patch on the lapel that adds a patriotic touch straight out of the 1940′s. The sleeve lining is red, white and blue striped.

This ready-to-wear jacket is based on one of Katherine Hooker’s bestsellers, the Alexander jacket, a genuine timeless classic, with a rounded collar and five buttons. Narrow at the waist and kicking out slightly over the hips, the jacket has a lovely curvaceous line.

available to purchase only during 2012, the Jubilee year, priced £595 online or at the shop

Jubilee celebrations at Katherine Hooker

Katherine Hooker is not only a very talented designer ( I am lucky to owe several of her jackets and a Jackson coat that made me feel warm and fashionably smart in the understated, yet chic kind of way throughout last winter ), she is also one of the loveliest women you will meet-charming, kind and attentive to both her clients and to quality and detailing in her designs and fabric choices.

I have met Katherine several years ago, when her jem of a shop in Chelsea was fairly newly opened. She had a small team helping her with the clients and orders in the shop and her sweet dog Pretzel was also the star attraction, either peacefully snoozing on his cushion or gently rebuffing your ‘patting’ advances . Katherine is very hardworking and dedicated to her craft, doing the fairs in the UK and trunk shows in the US, yet always finding time to advice her clients on the best style of the jacket or the perfect coat for the times of the year when we need to feel protected against the elements or a dress or a skirt for a special occasion in the bloom of spring or summer heat.

 On May 24th Katherine will be hosting a special event dedicated to Queen’s Jubilee celebrations, so put the date in your diary and go to do some bargain hunting in Katherine Hooker’s shop, where you will be spoilt for choice. Rest assured that whatever style or item you will choose, it will lovingly serve your for years and make you feel feminine and unique.
