The Duchess of Sussex will unveil her newworkwear charity collection in London on Thursday afternoon, however a dress and a handbag from the collection are already available to purchase through Marks & Spencer and John Lewis.
"It's reminding them that they've nothing to fear, just be yourself", the Duchess of Sussex affirmed to Karishma Navsaria, a volunteer at the charity Smart Works who helps vulnerable women to prepare for job interviews. Meghan's outfit is actually one of the looks from the new Smart Set collection, with her $154 blouse by Misha and trousers by Jigsaw.
"Now, one year later, I am excited to celebrate the launch of another initiative of women supporting women, and communities working together for the greater good", she said in an Instagram post showing the behind-the-scenes of a photo shoot for the collection. After quiet visits to Smartworks over the previous year, The Duchess was moved by the impactful work being done by this non profit organisation that helps women into the workforce, equipping them with both the skills and clothes they need to feel job-ready. For each piece sold on the shopfloor, one will be donated to Smart Works.
"Thank you to the four brands who came together in supporting Smart Works on this special project - placing goal over profit and community over competition".More news: Britain is not seeking N. Ireland-only backstop - PM Johnson's spokesman
While this is the Duchess' first official engagement since Archie's birth, she has made a number of public appearances since introducing baby Archie to the world in Windsor Castle on 8 May.
The duchess's capsule line aims to provide budget-friendly wardrobe options for women heading to job interviews and new jobs. It starts with Meghan exiting an elevator (just like in the movie 9 to 5!), dressed in the white button-down shirt and pants from the Smart Set, then heading outside to meet with women who have been helped by the charity.
