With all eyes on her so frequently, Kate Middleton typically plays it safe in the fashion department, but a few students from England’d De Montfort University are competing for a chance to design some shoes for the Duchess.

Coming up on March 8th, six pupils will present their fancy creations to Middleton when she visits the school’s town of Leicester with Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Phillip.

The competing individuals range in age from 20 to 27 and, according to UsWeekly, are looking to dress Kate in various styles from plaid booties to English rose-adorned peep-toe heels.

One of the lucky participants, Tabatha Duffield, told the Daily Mail, "I wanted something feminine and elegant to reflect her personality," when discussing the inspiration for her design of elegant heels adorned with laser-cut flowers.
