    In August of 2015 Canadian retail company Reitmans announced Meghan Markle as their new brand ambassador for its 2015 Fall/Winter collection and new “Reitmans. Really.” campaign. Hailing MM as a true style icon, the company said in their statement “Women across the country have come to look to her for style inspiration,” adding that “Meghan is the embodiment of fashion confidence. She has style and is down-to-earth. She is charming and really smart. Meghan has just the right mix of positive energy and fashion know-how.”

    Asked what MM will bring to the brand’s new style, the company said “Meghan understands how clothing and fashion fit into a woman’s life. She understands that for most of us it’s really about quickly throwing something on without spending hours getting ready, knowing that what you wear will help you look and feel really good when you walk out the door – giving you the confidence to face the day.” Meghan herself released a statement to share her excitement:

    “I’m so excited to be part of this re-energizing of Reitmans, and to be the face of a brand. I’m often asked what I wear both on and off camera, and the answer is that it’s a blend of a few luxury items mixed with classic and trend driven pieces that don’t break the bank. Reitmans is perfect for affordable & chic pieces that I absolutely love. Also, though I’m from LA, with this being my fifth year filming in Canada, I feel like an honorary Canadian, and have really come to call this home; it feels incredibly special to be embraced by a family-owned Canadian company, especially during such an exciting time for the brand. This is just the beginning of what we have in store, and I can’t wait to share it with you.” — Meghan Markle

    Jeannie Vondjidis-Miller, Vice-President of Marketing and Visual Presentation for Reitmans, added “She [Meghan] believes very strongly in values of inclusion, equality and accessibility, which are values shared by Reitmans.”

    In November 2016 came Meghan’s second capsule collection, The Meghan Markle Collection, which included 5 versatile pieces for Fall to easily mix and match from desk to dinner. In their announcement, Reitmans stated that Meghan “was heavily involved in the design process as well, ensuring that her personal style was reflected in each item.”

    “The first collection was a learning curve for me and for Reitmans as well. We wanted to provide a capsule collection that incorporated my personal style and personality while always embracing the Reitmans customer. The fall collection is comprised of pieces I love to wear but also has a bit of an edge. I hope Reitmans customers will love it as much as I do!” — Meghan Markle

    “Five key pieces designed by Meghan give you all you need for fall, and include a modern update on traditional workwear pieces such as a faux leather pencil skirt, a boyfriend-style blouse, faux leather leggings, and a turtleneck bodysuit. There’s also a super-soft cashmere blend poncho (available in two colours) that can be styled three different ways.”

    REITMANS FASHION CONVERSATIONS WITH MM

    (listen out for Meghan’s shoutout to the Queen when talking about tone-on-tone fashion.)

    In April 2017 Hello! Canada announced that Meghan’s partnership with Reitmans had come to an end. It was widely reported to be a move having to do with her imminent engagement to Prince Harry, as Meghan had also recently shut down her lifestyle blog The Tig, but Reitmans issued the following statement regarding the matter:

    “The partnership with Meghan Markle and Reitmans ended on a very positive note, and in line with the contract. The initiative was always meant to contain only two collections that were created with our in-house team of Montreal based designers and two advertising campaigns to support these collections. The partnership ended as was originally planned. We are very pleased with the collaboration we shared and we wish Meghan Markle much happiness in the future.”
