The wedding dress was too expensive and there’s no real boost for the fashion trade anyway

24 May, 2018

• THOSE who disagreed with Carole Taylor about the cost of Meghan Markle’s wedding dress must go around wearing rose-tinted spectacles, (It’s just too much, May 10).

How can the wearing of such an expensive item boost the trade of fashion companies etc when there are many closing down? I hear that Mothercare are closing yet another shop. Many other well-known companies have also closed, such as BHS.

The rich may be able to afford inflated prices but the not-so-rich do not have the opportunity to spend, spend, spend. The well-off philosophy is “I’m all right Jack, and blow the rest.” So many people have tunnel vision and are not in the real world.
