Meghan has shown an affinity for highlighting more local, independent brands, said Gail McInnes, owner of Magnet Creative Management, a Toronto-based fashion management company. This preference may favour Canada's fashion industry, which tends to use small production teams made up of locally hired staff.

"Glasgow-born McInnes has been a fixture in Toronto’s fashion community for over 20 years and for good reason. Gail is super passionate about supporting local Canadian designers and makers, and we totally agree because shopping local is more important now than ever. In addition to being the owner of fashion agency Magnet Creative Management, McInnes is also co-owner of Stylist Box, which is an exclusive fashion designer showroom where high profile clients can be dressed for events."
