Ever since Meghan Markle’s first public appearance with Prince Harry back in 2017, the Duchess has worn sustainable brands.
She opted for a crisp white shirt (fittingly named “The Husband Shirt”) by her friend Misha Nonoo, whose brand is known for its use of sustainable materials and made-to-order approach.
Meghan, 42, has continued wearing sustainable brands, having just recently worn a camel turtleneck top and skirt set from Bleusalt for a video announcing the Responsible Technology Youth Power Fund.
Tencel, a fibre made from wood that is sustainably obtained, is used by this Malibu-based brand to make all of its designs, which are all made in the US.

Vanessa Barboni Hallik, who launched the New York-based brand in 2020, is dedicated to using environmentally produced materials like recycled cashmere and FSC-certified viscose.
In addition, Ms Hallik likes to ensure all workers are given a livable wage throughout the supply chain.
Meghan has worn several items from the California-based Everlane brand over the years, including knitwear and jeans. Everlane aspires to make eco-friendly design more affordable for consumers.
The Duchess of Sussex chose a black jumpsuit from the brand for a trip to South Africa in 2019.
Since its 2004 debut, the French trainer brand Veja has grown to be cult-like because of its commitment to providing consumers with complete supply chain transparency.

Meghan wore a white tuxedo dress designed by a sustainable New Zealand-based brand called Maggie Marilyn to a reception in Wellington as part of her first royal tour in 2018. This was a lovely gesture to support local designers.

The Duchess was renowned for donning her friend Misha Nonoo’s “The Husband Shirt” for her first official outing with Prince Harry at the Invictus Games in Toronto in 2017.
