11 Canadian Brands We Want to See Meghan Markle Wear
Markoo and Jenny Bird are amongst some of the labels we'd like to see added to her wardrobe of Canadian designers.
It’s no secret that the Duchess of Sussex loves Canadian fashion, having worn Sentaler, Soia and Kyo, Mackage, Aritzia and more over the past few years. After recent news that she and Harry have moved to Canada, we suspect her penchant for local labels will only grow.
With no shortage of talent in the country, we’ve rounded up 11 Canadian brands we’d love to see Markle add to her wardrobe.
This Vancouver-based team uses completely repairable and recyclable cotton denim to make jeans. Now that Markle is no longer required to follow the royal dress code, which limits the wearing of jeans to only the most casual of outings, we’ll be on the lookout to see if Markle adopts the Canadian tuxedo… with the help of this sustainable denim brand.
We’d love to see her in the Pamela jean.
Frank And Oak
Frank And Oak’s environmentally conscious clothing is designed in Canada, and made with recycled materials. This brand is Certified B Corporation with a focus on equality and investing in community, so there’s plenty of reasons to buy into this brand.
We’d love to see her in the Camp Collar Blouse.
Classic and refined for the modern woman—it has been worn by the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Hudson—Obakki designs everything from loose-bodied dresses to scarves. It also has a philanthropic aspect, with its very own registered charity focusing on providing clean water and education in Africa.
We’d love to see her in the Sola dress.
This jewellery brand effortlessly merges modern-day with nostalgia. It draws its inspiration from around the world, bringing global stories back to Toronto where pieces are conceptualized and hand-crafted into wearable silhouettes.

Leah Alexandra Jewellery
Leah Alexandra Jewellery is inspired by travel and the beauty of raw materials. According to the brand, it uses the natural beauty of gemstones to “serve as a daily reminder of how fascinating and precious our planet is.” And the studio is a gem in itself. Tucked away on a side street, behind a vine-covered courtyard in one of Vancouver’s oldest buildings, the showroom and studio feature exposed brick walls and a cozy fireplace. Leah Alexandra Jewellery pieces have been worn by Jessica Alba, Reese Witherspoon and Canadian Tessa Virtue.
We’d love to see her in the Bardot Cuff.
Horse Atelier’s timeless pieces, including overalls, jumpsuits and blouses, are designed after travels across islands, deserts and Canada’s north, and are made with natural fabrics sourced from family-owned mills.
