You may want to take a moment to process the fact that Kate Middleton‘s wardrobe contributes over £1 billion to the economy.
Yes, the ‘Duchess Effect‘ has been in full swing ever since she graced the steps of Westminster Abbey in her Alexander McQueen wedding gown six years ago.
An unofficial ambassador of the high street, the Duchess of Cambridge has the ability to sell out dresses faster than the models in shopping edits of magazines. The 35-year-old even put designer label Issa out of business after her sell-out engagement dress racked up thousands of requests.
And year on year, the Duchess of Cambridge appears to strengthen her sartorial stance in the fashion industry.
