Here is my best explanation:

'dress' is the definition.
(robing is a kind of dressing)

'designer finally gets an award' is the subsidiary indication.
'finally' indicates one should take the final letters.
'gets' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'an award' becomes 'obe' (I've seen this in other clues**).
The final letter of 'designer' is 'r'.
'r'+'obe'='robe'
