During the conversation, Charles joked with the EIC about his own fashion choices. “I thought I was like a stopped clock—I’m right twice every 24 hours. But…I’m very glad you think it has style. I mind about detail and color combinations. I’m lucky because I can find marvelous people who are brilliant makers of the things that I appreciate, and because of that, I try to keep them going for longer.”
He continued, “I happen to be one of those people who’d get shoes—or any item of clothing—repaired if I can, rather than just throw it away. And that’s why I think, from an economic point of view, there are huge opportunities for people to set up small businesses involved with repair, maintenance and reuse.” Spoken like a true conservationist.
So, how does this relate to his daughter-in-law? Well, last year, the Duchess of Sussex also worked with Enninful and the publication. She served as the first guest editor of British Vogue's historic September issue in the publication's 103-year history. And rather than be featured as the cover star, she chose to feature 15 women who are "forces of change," which also happened to be the title of the issue.
