The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle has announced plans to create her own collection of women's clothing.
The project will be implemented as part of a charitable initiative to support unemployed women. Proceeds from the sale will go to Smart Works, an organization that helps women find permanent jobs.
To create the first office wear collection for women, Prince Harry's wife will collaborate with fashion brands John Lewis & Partners, Marks & Spencer and Jigsaw, as well as her friend, designer Misha Nona, through whom Meghan met her future husband.
According to the Duchess, the first fashion collection will go on sale before the end of 2019. On her official Instagram account, Meghan Markle has already posted a series of photos with images of items from the new collection. “We are very proud to be supporting this special endeavor with SmartWorksCharity this fall,” said Megan.
The Duchess will be supporting the organization to help Smart Works women stock up on essential essentials when they enter the workplace. The initiative is supported by four brands that share a vision to empower women to look and feel good as they bravely venture into what can often be a daunting environment for those who have been out of the labor market, the statement said.
Meghan herself notes that the project brought brands together to "work for this united force, redefining the idea of philanthropy as a community." More details about the new project of the Duchess and the upcoming release of the collection are promised to be presented in the September edition of British Vogue and on Meghan Markle's Instagram page this fall.
