Meghan Markle has revealed her plans to launch a workwear capsule collection.
The range will benefit her royal patronage, Smart Works – a charity that supports unemployed women who want to enter or return to the workforce.
The Duchess of Sussex announced the news in the September issue of British Vogue, which she guest-edited.
She wrote: “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 friend, the designer Misha Nonoo, if they were willing to design a capsule collection of more classic options for a workwear wardrobe.”
She continued, “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 a part of each other’s story, it reminds us we are in it together.”
