38-year old Meghan and her husband Prince William are keen supporters of sustainable fashion. On her recent trip to Africa, Meghan’s fashion choices were closely watched by the media.
When she visited the Auwal Mosque, Meghan chose to wear a recycled nylon dress from American fashion brand STAUD.
The Duchess supports sustainable fashion
With the eyes of the world constantly on the royal family, it is very meaningful gesture by the Duchess who placed her fashion choices around sustainable fashion.
In a statement the co-founder of STAUD Sarah Staudinger said “We are honoured that she chose to wear a dress from our brand.”
Meghan’s floor-length dress was made using recycled nylon. Demand for her shirt design dress has been huge with it selling out in hours.
According to STAUD, the response has been incredible and has exposed them to a much wider audience. STAUD was founded in 2015 by Sarah Staudinger and George. They produce sustainable fashion-wear and accessories for women across the world.
Fashion outfits sold out in record time
The Duchess made a real effort to switch to sustainably sourced and ethically conscious fashion brands on her trip to Africa.
Meghan re-wore some of her outfits while touring the African nations. Meghan’s line up included a wrap dress by Mayamiko. This sold out in record time after she was snapped wearing it.
This is seen by many fashion critics as one of the most economical overseas wardrobes ever worn by a member of the royal family on tour.In 2016,
Meghan was announced as a global ambassador for World Vision Canada where she travelled to Rwanda for their Clean Water Campaign.
Meghan and Prince Harry made their first official appearance together in public at a royal engagement at the Invictus Games in Toronto, Canada in 2017.
