Meghan Markle launched new Smart Set clothing line for Smart Works charity

Meghan Markle launched new Smart Set clothing line for Smart Works charity


Meghan Markle’s hotly anticipated clothing
line for Smart Works launched today, and behind-the-scenes photos from the Marks & Spencer shoot, show
the Duchess laughing and hugging models. The new photos were taken from the same shoot
which Meghan gave her 9.4 million Instagram followers, a sneak preview of last month. Sussex Royal shared an Instagram story showing,
Meghan Markle meeting and greeting women, as she oversaw the photoshoot for the collaboration. The Duchess of Sussex is known for her on-trend
style, so who better to create the perfect working wardrobe than Meghan herself? On Thursday, Prince Harry’s wife made an official
return to work as she carried out her first solo engagement in London since giving birth
to baby Archie in May. Meghan Markle has unveiled her first foray
into fashion design, with a Smart Set capsule collection for women’s charity Smart Works,
which comprises some very chic, easy-to-wear pieces. Duchess Meghan has been patron of the organisation
since January, which works to empower women with the confidence and clothing to go to
a job interview and launch a new career. She was inspired to create new designs after
visiting the charity and noticing the clothing donated “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 friend, the designer Misha Nonoo, if they were willing
to design a capsule collection of more classic options for a workwear wardrobe,” she wrote
in the September issue of Vogue. In the candid black-and-white photos, the
Duchess of Sussex, 38, is pictured getting stuck in to the shoot and greets each model
warmly as they pose in her new five-piece collection of workwear. In signature Meghan style, the Duchess is
pictured in an oversized pinstripe shirt and jeans which she dresses up with a pair of
high heels. Meghan said: “Since moving to the UK, it has
been deeply important to me to meet with communities and organisations on the ground doing meaningful
work and to try to do whatever I can to help them amplify their impact.” She added: “Thank you to the four brands who
came together in supporting Smart Works on this special project – placing purpose over
profit and community over competition. In convening several companies rather than
one, we’ve demonstrated how we can work collectively to empower each other – another layer to
this communal success story, that I am so proud to be a part of.” The clothing is already for sale online with
the “Smart Set Dress” described as “a perfect choice all year round”. It has received some rave reviews from customers
with one — called The Duchess — saying: “I particularly love love love the detail
around the neckline it pretty and bold and feminine all at once. Smart Works client Kate, said her outfit “made
me feel like a boss — powerful and strong. It just made me feel amazing; reminding me
of how far I have come and the future I have in front of me.” For every item bought, one will be donated
to the charity because “not only does this allow us to be part of each other’s story;
it reminds us we are in it together,” Meghan said. Writing in the September issue of Vogue, she
said there was “often a misunderstanding about Smart Works being a makeover, a fashion
show of “before and after”, where a woman is magically transformed into something better
than she was before. The Smart Set collection will be available
from Thursday for at least two weeks, in stores, online and in Smart Works Dressing Rooms. The pieces are available in a range of different
sizes and colours and come with different price points, to make them as accessible and
inclusive as possible. For every item bought, another will be given
to Smart Works to help a woman get back into the workplace. The collection comprises a £125 Smart Set
Shirt by Misha Nonoo; a £19.50 Smart Set Dress by Marks & Spencer; a Smart Set Suit
by Jigsaw made up of a £199 jacket and £120 trousers, and a £109 Smart Set Tote by John
Lewis.

  2. Who sits like that? Everything with her is so contrived and fake. Just like today, when she made her appearance, she said she had to hurry cause it was Archie's feeding time. Well, who was feeding him while she was in NY watching Serena play tennis??
