12 September 2019, 14:34
Meghan Markle’s Smart Works collection has officially dropped, and you can now shop the entire range.
Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, has been working with charity Smart Works to launch a capsule clothing range to help women feel confident and smart for job interviews.
Each time a piece of the collection is purchased, the same piece will be donated to the Smart Works team, where women can go to be styled for job interviews.
Speaking of the collection, Meghan said: “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.”

It was just last September that we launched the ‘Together’ cookbook with the women of the Hubb Kitchen in Grenfell. Today, a year later, I am excited to celebrate the launch of another initiative of women supporting women, and communities working together for the greater good. 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.
