Meghan Markle’s first fashion collection is here, and it’s a very special project for the duchess. Meghan has collaborated with Smart Works, one of the charities that she is patron of, to create a capsule collection of workwear essentials called The Smart Set. Smart Works’ mission is to offer dressing and coaching services to women with job interviews, so it’s only fitting that Meghan’s collection features everything a woman needs to create a capsule work wardrobe: a shirt, trousers, a blazer, a dress, and a bag.
To ensure each piece is perfect, the duchess called upon the help of British fashion labels Jigsaw, Marks and Spencer, and John Lewis, as well as her close friend, designer Misha Nonoo. The collection will operate on a 1:1 policy: for every item bought, another will be shared, through Smart Works, with someone who desperately needs it. The first few pieces went on sale at Marks and Spencer and John Lewis, with the rest expected to be available soon, as the duchess officially launches the range later today.
