Meghan Markle has released her first capsule line with one of her first patronages, Smart Works, and it’s selling fast already.
The collection is a high street work wear for women which includes a shirt, trousers, a blazer, dress and a bag. It is also interesting to know that an item is donated to charity every time a capsule set is purchased.
The Smart Set collection was created by Jigsaw, John Lewis and Partners, Marks & Spencer and Misha Nonoo, a good friend to the Duchess.
In the launch program, the Duchess of Sussex emphasized the importance of women supporting and lifting each other up.
“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. “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”, Meghan remarked.
She also stressed that everyone should work together and empower each other for the greater good of the community.
“I think it’s really key in this day and age that we remember it’s not just about the people you know you’re supporting, it’s about the people you don’t know — that you may never know, may never meet. “As women, it is 100 per cent our responsibility, I think, to support and up-lift each other.
“To champion each other so we aim to succeed, to not set each other up for failure but instead to really be there rallying round each other and say ‘I want to help you’.
“And you may not ever meet that person but you know when you put on that blazer or that shirt or you carry that tote or put on those trousers and that dress that some other woman on the other side of this country is wearing that piece because you made that purchase,” she added.
For the event, Meghan stepped out looking effortlessly chic in her Misha Nonoo shirt and Jigsaw’s trousers from her new collection. She paired her outfit with Manolo Blahnik pumps and a Ralph Lauren belt.
In terms of accessories, the Duchess donned on the Princess of Wales’ bracelet and butterfly earrings.
This was her first Royal e since she gave birth to Archie on the 6th of May, 2019.
As the event came to a close, the new mother said, “I’ve got to get back to the baby, it’s feeding time.”
