Meghan Markle is truly immersing herself into the world of fashion. From guest editing British Vogue to working on a charitable fashion line, the Duchess continues to take the world by storm.
Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, made history when it was announced that she had been a guest editor for the September issue of British Vogue. The Duchess is the first person to ever to be named as a guest editor for the all-important September issue. But that’s not all that Markle is doing for the fashion industry.
According to Page Six, in the issue, the Duchess apparently announced that she is working on a very special fashion line of her own, one that will benefit a charity that she supports.
As part of a partnership with designer Misha Nonoo, the brand Jigsaw, and department stores John Lewis & Partners and Marks and Spencer, Meghan Markle will be launching a capsule collection of her own. The collection will benefit the charity Smart Works. The charity helps women who are vulnerable and unemployed get back on their feet and into the workforce.
In the September issue of British Vogue, the Duchess wrote that for every piece that is purchased from the collection, another one will be donated to charity. According to Meghan Markle, “Not only does this allow us to be part of each other’s story, it reminds us we are in it together.”
While we are certainly excited to see what the Duchess has in store for us, we will have to wait a bit longer to see what the collection includes. This limited-edition capsule will not be released until the end of this year.
Although we may not know a lot about what the fashion line will include, considering Nonoo is known for capsules that are both empowering to women and all about sustainability — two causes that the Duchess also supports — we can guess that empowerment and sustainability will be a part of the collection.
It seems like this is the perfect time for Duchess Meghan to release a fashion line, considering the effect she has had on the fashion industry already. With so many people wanting even the smallest piece of the Duchess for themselves, being able to snag something that she worked on seems like a dream come true.
