Duchess Catherine has stepped out in a beautiful green dress while visiting charity Family Action, but the outfit is more than just a gorgeous gown.
Designed by Beulah London, the dress comes with a strong social justice mission: to help eradicate slavery and to provide support and employment for victims of sex trafficking.
"Beulah was founded with the mission to help eradicate slavery through the power of skilled craft, exemplary business ethics and conscious consumption," says the luxury designer brand on their website.
After the founders Lady Natasha Rufus Isaacs and Lavinia Brennan visited India on a volunteer mission in 2010, they witnessed first hand the awful effects that modern day slavery imposes on innocent lives, but learned how by helping them find opportunities and employment, "small acts of kindness can carry a truly significant impact on providing hope for the future."
Inspired to contribute how they could, Beulah was born.
For each garment sold, Beulah donates 10 per cent of the profit to the Beulah Trust, which aims to "give grants that pay for skill courses giving women who have been victims of sex trafficking and abuse the chance to find work, generate an income, and live a self-sufficient life, free from abuse."
Duchess Catherine chose to wear the label's gorgeous Yahvi tailored crepe midi dress in olive green, which features fluted cuffs and covered button detailing down the side. She accessorised with a matching green belt, and an olive green suede clutch and heels, while visiting the charity Family Action in Lewisham, South London to launch a new support line called FamilyLine.
The support line will use a network of volunteers from across the country to support parents and carers through phone calls, email and texts.
"The Duchess' visit to @family_action furthers her work in supporting children from their earliest years," says an Instagram post by @kensingtonroyal.
"HRH is currently driving a research project to establish what more can be done in[sic] across the UK to give children their best possible start to life."
Meanwhile in Davos, Switzerland Prince William sat down with Sir David Attenborough at the World Economic Forum to discuss Sir David's work, highlighting the importance of the natural world and the urgent work facing the next generation of environmental leaders.
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern also attended the forum, following her secret meeting with Duchess Meghan at Kensington Palace on Monday, where she sat on the Safeguarding our Planet panel alongside Sir David, former US vice-president Al Gore, chairman of the Mahindra Group Anand Mahindra and chairwoman of the Zero Waste Academy in Japan, Akira Sakano.
