The Duchess of Sussex has one of the most sought-after wardrobes, with many of the pieces she wears selling out in minutes, so royal fans will undoubtedly be pleased to hear that she’s launching a capsule collection of workwear.
Meghan is partnering up with the charity Smart Works – of which she is a royal patron – which supports unemployed women who are entering or returning to work.
The duchess will work on the project with a series of collaborators from the high-street, including Marks & Spencer, John Lewis and Jigsaw. She’ll also partner with her close friend, fashion designer Misha Nonoo on the collection.
The collection will be sold on a “one-for-one basis”, whereby an item is donated for each item that’s bought, and will be available later this year.
Meghan explained: “Not only does this allow us to be part of each other’s story, it reminds us we are in it together.”
She’s been a royal patron of Smart Works since January, where she helped style several women for a job interview.
If Meghan’s past influence on fashion is anything to go by, her capsule collection will be an instant hit.
Global fashion search engine Lyst previously quantified this influence and worked out which duchess has the bigger pulling power.
While both Meghan and the Duchess of Cambridge are style inspirations, the Duchess of Sussex is the woman with more influence. According to Lyst, Meghan’s outfit choices trigger almost twice as much online demand as Kate’s do.
On average in 2019, Kate’s fashion choices lead to an increase of 119 per cent of online interest in comparison to Meghan, who averages at about 216 per cent.
