Katherine Hooker, who formerly sold her apparel exclusively in England, is hosting a trunk show in Midtown Thursday. Featuring a sample of her most popular designs, the show will allow for visitors to be custom fitted by associates.

Middleton made Hooker’s designs famous when she first was photographed in the label during her earliest days of dating Prince William. She’s one fan Hooker is happy to have.

“Kate is so elegant. Her style’s so appealing because it’s very subtle,” Hooker told the New York Post. “She doesn’t take her style too seriously, but she really knows what she likes and what she wants. She knows exactly what works for her.”

You can visit the show from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Regency Hotel on Park Avenue.
