    Thanks to Kate & Wills, the Olympics, and ASOS, it seems as though everyone stateside has a major case of Anglo fever these days. Our tabloids can't get enough of the royal family's antics and shoppers can't get enough of their buttoned-up British style. And now, you can get a taste of the royal life (and the royal wardrobe!), right here in D.C., courtesy of Katherine Hooker, the pure genius behind an eponymous London line of coats and jackets.

    Katherine specializes in custom-made pieces, ensuring that every single coat you don fits like, well, it was made for you. Customers can choose from over 150 fabrics, and each jacket is handmade in her London studio to ensure you get exactly what you want.

    Oh, and to our point above, she's bringing a taste of the outerwear good life to the District with a trunk show next week. The designer herself will be on hand to offer personal fittings, so that you can recreate your very own version of The Princess Diaries. We've pulled together our favorite pieces from the winter collection ahead, so that you can start dreaming up your perfect coat now. Click through to check them out, your highness.

    When: Friday, October 26, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
    Where: Heath Gibson residence, 5040 Glenbrook Terrace NW; no phone.
