Meghan Markle is rounding out her resume! The Suits alum turned royal mom announced her partnership with designer pal Mischa Nonoo in the September issue of Vogue, which she guest-edited. The capsule collection will be released in September and will benefit one of her favorite charities, Smart Works, an org that helps women land jobs.
“When you walk into a Smart Works space you’re met with racks of clothing and an array of bags and shoes,” Meghan writes in Vogue. “Sometimes, however, it can be a potpourri of mismatched sizes and colors, not always the right stylistic choices or range of sizes.”
“To help with this, I asked Marks & Spencer, John Lewis & Partners, Jigsaw and my friends, the designer Mischa Nonoo, if they were willing to design a capsule collection of more classic options for a workwear wardrobe,” she added. “Taking the idea further, many of the brands agreed to use the one-for-one model: for each item purchased by a customer, one is donated to the charity. Not only does this allow us to be part of each other’s story, it reminds us we are in it together.”
Meghan and Nonoo go way back, and frequented each other’s social media posts before Meghan had to delete her personal one to marry Prince Harry. (They now share a joint account). Nonoo is also said to be the one who introduced Meghan to Harry.
Seeing as Meghan’s “Sparkle” effect on fashion lines has been well-documented, the collection will likely be a success.
