Meghan Markle gives Ar­itzia a boost af­ter In­vic­tus Games dress choice

Medicine Hat News - - BUSINESS -

VAN­COU­VER Ac­tor Meghan Markle gave fash­ion re­tailer Ar­itzia a boost af­ter don­ning a dress sold by the Cana­dian com­pany dur­ing the In­vic­tus Games, where royal watch­ers hotly an­tic­i­pated her first pub­lic ap­pear­ance with beau Prince Harry.

The Toronto-based “Suits” star wore a $185 truf­fle-coloured dress de­signed by the Van­cou­ver-based com­pany’s in-house Wil­fred brand at the games’ open­ing cer­e­mony Sept. 23.

The dress is now sold out in that colour, with on­line or­ders of ex­tra ex­tra small to large sizes ship­ping around Feb. 15 next year. Limited sizes in other colours are still avail­able on­line.

The Van­cou­ver-based com­pany, which de­clined to com­ment, shared a pic­ture of the star wear­ing the dress on its In­sta­gram feed.

Markle has pre­vi­ously show­cased Ar­itzia (TSX:ATZ) clothes on her so­cial me­dia, post­ing a photo on In­sta­gram in Dec. 2014 in “cozy clothes” made by the com­pany.

The 36-year-old star pre­vi­ously had a part­ner­ship with Cana­dian re­tailer Reit­mans. She de­signed two cap­sule col­lec­tions for the com­pany, most re­cently in the fall of 2016.
