<strong><a href="https://ca.hellomagazine.com/tags/0/kate-middleton">Duchess Kate</a></strong> and <a href="https://ca.hellomagazine.com/tags/0/meghan-markle"><strong>Duchess Meghan</strong></a> have such sophisticated styles. Whatever clothes and accessories they wear, royals fans want to know. Often, they want to own the pieces themselves! 
<p>The "Kate effect" and "Meghan effect" are certainly true when it comes to fashion, so it can be a tremendous boost to fashion designers to have the support of the duchesses. Meghan and/or Kate wearing an item can put an up-and-coming brand on the map and make pieces sell out. 
<p>In honour of <a href=/tags/0/international-womens-day><strong>International Women's Day</strong></a>, we are profiling some of the female designers and brand owners that Kate and Meghan have worn previously. They have shared their stories with <i><strong>HELLO! Canada</strong></i> about what it means to have the duchesses as fans and how it has affected their businesses.
