See New Behind-the-Scenes Photos of Meghan Markle at the Photo Shoot for Her Charity Clothing Collection
The other day, the Duchess of Sussex launched a project which weds two of her passions: fashion and empowering women. Later that day, she attended a panel, where she discussed her new clothing line, a capsule collection of work-appropriate clothing, which benefits one of her patronages, Smart Works. For each item in the collection sold, a piece will be donated to the charity, which helps provide underprivileged women with the strategies and attire they need to be successful in job interviews.
In honor of the launch, Buckingham Palace released a few behind-the-scenes snapshots from the capsule collection photoshoot. See those pictures, coupled with Meghan's quotes on why this initiative is so important to her, below. And if you'd like to shop the line, which includes a dress in multiple colors, a tote bag, and a suit, that link is right here.
“Since moving to the UK, it has been deeply important to me to meet with communities and organizations on the ground doing meaningful work and to try to do whatever I can to help them amplify their impact. It was just last September that we launched the ‘Together’ cookbook with the women of the Hubb Kitchen in Grenfell. 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."
"When you buy any item in the Smart Set Capsule Collection for Smart Works, the same item will be given to a Smart Works client, and with it, the confidence and support she needs to enter the workforce and take an important step in building a career."
"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."
