Meghan Markle just designed her first fashion collection.
We can now add clothing designer to her list of accomplishments.
ON THE BEST THING SHE HAS EVER WORN
“I had a fitting for Miu Miu at New York Fashion Week; they gave me a sequined denim miniskirt, embellished pale-turquoise pumps and a massive shearling coat. Putting on [the clothes] was the first time I understood that fashion could change your mood. It was like drinking a glass of champagne!”
ON HER ONSCREEN ALTER EGO
“Playing Rachel Zane on Suits has given me an education in fashion. It has opened my eyes to the value of quality in a piece of clothing and exposed me to designers who would never have been on my radar.”
ON HER LIFESTYLE SITE, THE TIG
“I wanted to have a community for women to be uplifting and supportive of one another, to give them distance from how snarky things can get. Young women would always run up to me on the street and say ‘I love you in Suits!’ Now they come up to me and say ‘I love The Tig!’”
ON HER CAPSULE COLLECTION WITH REITMANS
“I’m connected to every piece in this collection; my fingerprints are all over these dresses. When I was thinking of the designs, I was taking pictures of a fig tree in my house to get the exact palm shape.” (In stores April 24; from $80, reitmans.com)
