It can’t be denied that, Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle is a determined, driven, and inspirational woman of today. From being on a hit American TV show, she became a British royal, has recently guest edited British Vogue whilst highlighting empowering women, she will now be going the extra mile for charity whilst selling style.
Markle is now going to partake in the launch of a women’s work wear collection to benefit her patronage at Smart Works; a charity that’s dedicated to benefiting unemployed or disadvantaged women and helps them to go back to work.
Meghan shared the news of her latest venture in the September issue of British Vogue, in which she stated, “For each item purchased by a customer, one is donated to charity. Not only does this allow us to be part of each other's story, it reminds us we are in it together."
The collection will be in collaboration with John Lewis, Marks & Spencer, and Jigsaw along with her long-term friend and designer, Misha Nonoo. Each time a piece is sold from the forthcoming collection, an item will be donated to the Smart Works charity.
In January, the Duchess of Sussex became the royal patron of the organization and attended a public engagement at Smart Works’ headquarters also. Due to her patronage, the charity has helped 187 women get back on their feet in London, 50% more than they had aided in the previous year.
