Meghan Markle is stepping up her style statement by starting her own clothing line, the Duchess of Sussex will be working with her royal patronage Smart Works to benefit them, Smart Works is a charity focused on helping women join the workforce by providing clothes and guidance.
Meghan explained said in an interview: “When you walk into a Smart Works space you’re met with racks of clothing and an array of bags and shoes.
“Sometimes, however, it can be a potpourri of mismatched sizes and colours, not always the right stylistic choices or range of sizes.
“To help with this, I asked Marks & Spencer, John Lewis & Partners, Jigsaw and my friends, the designer Mischa Nonoo, if they were willing to design a capsule collection of more classic options for a workwear wardrobe.
“Taking the idea further, many of the brands agreed to use the one-for-one model: for each item purchased by a customer, one is donated to the charity. Not only does this allow us to be part of each other’s story, it reminds us we are in it together.”
The American actress turned princess is definitely making fashion statement from her wedding dress to her maternity style.
This isn’t the first time Meghan has tried her hand at fashion and many other things, her first clothing line with local retailer Reitmans which featured vegan leather trousers and finally her cookbook that raised more than 500,000 pounds sterling for the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen in West London, a kitchen that supports members of the community affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.. she definitely knows one or two things about fashion and she is expressing them through her new clothing line.
Meghan will be working with one of her BFFs designer Misha Nonoo to help with the design and retailers Marks & Spencer, John Lewis and Jigsaw to create a collection of women’s workwear for the Smart Works charity she is patron of, the collection is due to drop in Fall 2019.
