Meghan Markle’s Top Christian Dior Haute Couture Fashion Moments So Far

Meghan Markle is known for her refined fashion sense, which she proudly puts together herself without the help of a stylist.

Since marrying into the British royal family in 2018, Meghan has moved away from the convention of dressing nearly exclusively in British designers, instead patronizing some of the biggest names in Parisian haute couture.

Where Interior Design Meets Fashion

Interior design as a business and a creative practice is experiencing a renaissance not seen since probably the Renaissance when people dramatically re-evaluated their ideas of public vs. private urban spaces as well as divergent functional needs for the places of dwelling, labor, and leisure. The COVID-19 global lockdowns upended centuries of “common sense” about organizing shared spaces around day-to-day activities. A home turned into everything: office, gym, quiet study and loud entertainment center, industrial-grade food storage facility, childcare program, and a place of worship. It became clear the New Normal was overdue for a major redesign. The once-niche market is projected to grow at an impressive 8% compound annual growth rate to reach $255 billion annual valuation within five years. The next generation of in-demand interior designers and architects will be informed by the post-pandemic vision of co-working and co-living, in style.
