Meghan Markle Is Launching a Workwear Collection to Remind Women "We Are in It Together"
It's no secret that Meghan Markle is a style icon, and thanks to her upcoming workwear collection, women will be able to say they were styled by the Duchess of Sussex herself. Following her recent stint as a guest editor for the September issue of British Vogue, Meghan has partnered with a few of her friends from the fashion world, including Marks & Spencer, Jigsaw, John Lewis, and Misha Nonoo, to create a line of stylish and sophisticated workwear for women in the UK.
Meghan announced the news of her capsule collection in British Vogue, according to royal reporter Omid Scobie on Twitter. "Not only does this allow us to be part of each other's story, it reminds us we are in it together," Meghan told the magazine, per Omid's tweet.
The collection is set to launch later this year, and each item will be sold on a "one-for-one basis," which means that for every item of clothing purchased, another will be donated to a woman in need. Back in January, Meghan became the royal patron of Smart Works, a charity focussed on helping unemployed women looking to return to the workforce by providing free clothes and interview training. The "one-for-one" system will directly support Smart Works, helping women regain their confidence and secure the jobs they deserve.
During her visit with the charity earlier this year, Meghan said, "It's not just donating your clothes and seeing where they land, it's really being part of each other's success stories as women." Cheers to that, Meghan!
