Meghan Markle made her mark on the fashion world this week following the release of her guest-edited issue of British Vogue. The September edition champions 15 “trailblazing women” who are featured on the front cover rather than the Duchess herself. Now Meghan has announced her philanthropic mission will be seeping onto the British high street soon as she teams up with top names and a designer pal to produce a line of women’s clothing. Here’s when you can buy it.
The Duchess of Sussex is working with Marks and Spencer, John Lewis and Partners, Jigsaw and her fashion designer friend Misha Nonoo to create work clothes for women.
As we have come to expect from the Duchess, there is a worthy cause behind this new project.
Smart Works Charity is one of several charities the Duchess is a patron to and is one she chose to promote in the September issue of Vogue.

Smart Works helps women to get jobs by preparing them for interviews and gifting them appropriate outfits to wear.
After noticing the “mismatched” nature of some of the clothes donated to the women seeking help from the charity, Meghan decided to take things into her own hands.
A Instagram post on Meghan’s Sussex Royal Instagram account about said: “Throughout her visits she noticed that while the donations were plentiful, they were also notably a combination of mismatched items and colours which weren’t always the right stylistic choices or sizes that didn’t necessarily ‘suit’ the job at hand: to make a woman feel confident and inspired as she walked into her job interview.”
Meghan’s solution was to team up wth British fashion brands to create “workwear essentials” that “help equip the women of Smart Works with the key workwear essentials they need as they enter into the workplace.”
