The Duchess of Sussex chose to champion a black fashion designer during an exclusive interview with the Evening Standard to mark the start of Black History Month.

Meghan appeared with Prince Harry in a video call with staff at the Standard to launch their list of BHM Next Gen Trailblazers, wearing a camel-coloured asymmetrical slash-neck top by Haitian-born, New York-based designer Victor Glemaud.

Pairing the $375 merino wool knit, part of the designer’s autumn/winter 2020 collection, with brown leather trousers and a slicked-back up-do, Meghan’s look was at once understated and fashion-forward.

Her choice was timely, for at Paris Fashion Week Glemaud, known for his bold knitwear, launched In the Blk, a network designed to support black designers and creatives to achieve economic independence through mentorship, community and business-building resources.

Glemaud has since posted a photograph from the interview, writing: “The Duchess of Sussex wears Victor Glemaud in honour of Black History Month in the UK. Thank you for choosing me for this very special moment.”

Glemaud has earned himself a long list of celebrity fans, with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ashley Graham and Selena Gomez all photographed in his creations.
