People have been comparing recently-engaged Meghan Markle to King Midas since this story surfaced. That’s because since the actress got engaged to Royal Prince Harry, everything she touches seems to turn to gold… Including designer clothes!
Case in point: this navy blue coat she wore to World AIDS Day in Nottingham.
Simply called “ELODIE”, it’s designed right here in Montreal by Mackage. Predictably, after photos of Markle wearing the coat surfaced on social media, it almost immediately sold out.
“Our website traffic exploded, we had a 500 per cent increase today ... mostly all in Europe, because North America (was) just waking up,” Mackage’s communications director Hugo Thibault told the Montreal Gazette on Friday.
The coat is still listed on Mackage’s website, but will only become available after Wednesday, January 3, 2018.
