Since joining the royal family, Meghan Markle has been conscious of the power of her fashion choices to make statements for the causes she supports, particularly British fashion makers and female-helmed brands, especially in her collaboration with Clare Waight-Keller to create her Givenchy wedding gown.
For her Australian tour, the Duchess made a concentrated effort to sports clothing that was made ethically and sustainably, including brands such as Stella McCartney, Reformation and Gabriela Hearst.
