The Queen of Spain presented the Mutua Madrileña Foundation Grants for Social Projects in its 10th edition at the Mutua Madileña's auditorium in Madrid on Thursday.
The annual awards recognize and help promote initiatives by non-profit entities that contribute to improving the socioeconomic reality and quality of life of various vulnerable groups.
Queen Letizia made a sartorial statement for the occasion, wearing a Ukrainian vyshyvanka embroidered blouse.
The embroidery is a fundamental element of the Ukrainian folk costume. According to Wikipedia, the vyshyvanka not only speaks of its Ukrainian origin but also of the particular region in which it was made. Embroidery is thus an important craft within Ukraine and different techniques exist to suit local styles with their own particular patterns and colours. You can find a good range of vyshyvanka blouses on Etsy.
Her Majesty arrived at the auditorium wearing a new black blazer with patch pockets, and yoke-front trousers. I will update the post if they are identified.
Queen Letizia's accessories included her black Möhel 'Coco' Belt, Carolina Herrera 'Astrud' clutch, and Magrit 'Mila' pumps in black leather.
