Mucho antes de que Meghan Markle fuera duquesa de Sussex ya veíamos en ella un extremado gusto por la moda. Ahora como parte de la familia Real Británica no ha perdido ese estilo propio que la caracteriza, y a pesar de que como afirmó está de baja maternal para dedicarse a su primogénito, Archie, no ha descuidado esa parte de su vida.

Acaba de hacerse público que ha comenzado a colaborar con la mítica Marks & Spencer, para crear juntos una colección cápsula con prendas working girl, y que además tendrá fines benéficos, algo que también caracteriza a Meghan desde palacio.

El periodista británico Omid Scobie ha sido quien ha dado la información. Parece que la colección no llegará hasta las tiendas hasta finales de año, pero se sabe que la duquesa ha contado con grandes aliados para conseguir que esta causa llegue a buen puerto, además de los grandes almacenes: la cadena también británica John Lewis, la marca Jigsaw y su gran amiga, la diseñadora Misha Nonoo. 

Y hoy mismo lo confirmaba la cuenta oficial de los Duques de Sussex en Instagram:

Spotlight on: Smart Works We are proud to be supporting a very special initiative this autumn for @SmartWorksCharity! After quiet visits to Smartworks over the last year, The Duchess was moved by the impactful work being done by this non profit organisation that helps women into the workforce, equipping them with both the skills and clothes they need to feel job-ready. Throughout her visits she noticed that while the donations were plentiful, they were also notably a combination of mismatched items and colours which weren’t always the right stylistic choices or sizes that didn’t necessarily “suit” the job at hand: to make a woman feel confident and inspired as she walked into her job interview. As a result, launching this autumn, The Duchess will be supporting a collective to help equip the women of Smart Works with the key workwear essentials they need as they enter into the workplace. This initiative is supported by four generous brands who share the vision to empower the women of Smart Works to look and feel 💯 as they bravely venture in to what can often be a daunting environment for those who have been out of the job market. The brands have come together to work towards this united force for good, “[reframing] the idea of charity as community,” as The Duchess writes in a piece for this month’s British Vogue. They will follow the 1:1 model where an item from the collection purchased is an item shared with a woman of Smart Works because “not only does this allow us to be part of each other’s story; it reminds us we are in it together.” For more information on how you can be part of another woman’s success story visit @smartworkscharity. Special thanks to: @JohnLewisandPartners, @MarksandSpencer, @MishaNonoo, @InsideJigsaw for supporting this very special organisation. And to find out more, read the September issue of @BritishVogue and stay tuned for more exciting updates this autumn. Photo©️SussexRoyal

Por cada prenda que se compre, se va a donar otra a la organización Smart Works, con quien trabaja la duquesa (quien  ya ha ayudado a algunas de las mujeres de la organización a vestirse para una entrevista de trabajo), y que se encarga de ayudar a mujeres desempleadas a ingresar con éxito al mundo laboral.

La propia Meghan ha confesado:

«Esto no solo nos permite formar parte de la historia los unos de los otros, también nos recuerda quienes somos juntos«.
