The Duchess of Sussex just finished her first engagement since leaving on maternity leave. Meghan has officially returned to all her royal duties, with her first engagement being with a charity she supports fully.
She just released her long awaited work-clothes line, with the money gathered from the sales going to Smart Works, a charity that helps women who are struggling with finding jobs and getting on their feet.
Her collection of workwear is comprised of Marks & Spencer shift dress, a Jigsaw suit, a Misha Nonoo white shirt and a John Lewis & Partners tote bag, which sold out before the launch.
The project was a great success, with photographer Jenny Zarins taking photos from the event and posting them online. The photographer took snaps of the Duchess as she revealed the clothesline and talked with the women present, as well as photos of the beneficiaries Kate, Andrea and Zara-with all three having received help for work through the organization. The three of them in turn modeled for the clothes collection.
Taking to her Instagram on Monday, four days after the launch, Jenny shared several new pictures, and captioned the post: “Few behind the scenes from The Smart Set shoot. So many laughs & great energy on this day. So happy & honoured to have been part of this brilliant project.”
The greatest photo goes to a black and white snap of the Duchess looking through the clothes that are hanging on the rails as well as talking and laughing with Kate, Andrea and Zara.
The entire workclothes collection will be available on sale for two weeks, and it already has become a hit with consumer and royal fans.
Employment agency reed.co.uk called the Smart Set Capsule Collection “simple, polished and elegant”.
Communications executive Laura Holden told HELLO!: “Selecting the perfect interview outfit can be tricky. Whatever your style, your outfit choice should fill you with the confidence you need to succeed at an interview.
“This capsule collection encompasses some timeless interview classics. It’s simple, polished and elegant. The block colours and crisp cotton shirt present a clean, flattering look.
“Whilst ultimately your skills, tenacity and personality will land you the role, there’s no denying that having a well-thought-out wardrobe will alleviate some of those pre-interview nerves. In supporting Smart Works, these outfits can not only help you get the job, but empower other women too.”
