The Duchess of Sussex is designing a capsule collection set to benefit unemployed women trying to enter the workforce.
Meghan Markle has one of the most sought-after wardrobes. From Veja trainers, initial necklaces and wedged espadrilles - many of the pieces she wears reach sell-out status after just one wear. So royal fans will be pleased to hear that the Duchess is launching a capsule collection of workwear.
The collection will be a collaboration with the charity, Smart Works - of which she is a royal patron - which supports unemployed women who are entering or returning to work.
Meghan is said to be designing the collection with a series of collaborators from fashion designers such as her close friend, Misha Nonoo, as well as designers from the high-street, including M&S, John Lewis and Jigsaw.
The collection will be sold on a “one-for-one basis”, whereby an item is donated for each item that’s bought and will be available later this year.
In her interview as guest editor of Vogue, the Duchess explained:
Not only does this allow us to be part of each other’s story, it reminds us we are in it together.
Although we don't know what exactly will be in this royal-approved collection, based on Meghan's preference for classic silhouettes and streamlined styles, you can pretty much guarantee that there will be plenty of basic black dresses, pencil skirts, and maybe even a white button-up shirt like the Misha Nonoo one she wore to the 2017 Invictus Games.
In terms of what to expect from the high street offering, Meghan has also worn a variety of affordable M&S pieces, so perhaps she will recreate some of her past favourites like the bell sleeve jumper she wore in January 2018 while on an outing to Brixton with Prince Harry.
Regardless of what Meghan releases later this year, her pieces will sell out immediately.
