Markle Sparkle | Correspondents on the scene in London report on the ‘Markle Sparkle,’ the ability of the bride of the moment to make merchandise fly off the shelves. “Within minutes of her appearing in a new outfit, fashion websites crash, items are sold out, retailers get orders for hundreds, if not thousands of extra garments just from the fact that she’s worn something. It really is a phenomenal effect,” said Patsy Perry, senior lecturer in fashion marketing at the University of Manchester.” – MarketWatch
