Meghan Markle shares a sneak peek of her clothing collaboration with charity Smart Works in a behind-the-scenes clip on Instagram – The Sun

MEGHAN Markle has teased a first look at her new clothing collection for charity Smart Works as she released a behind-the-scenes clip.

The Duchess of Sussex uploaded a sneak peek of the photoshoot for the new womenswear range, which is hitting shelves in autumn.

Sussex Royal shared an Instagram story showing the 38-year-old meeting and greeting women as she oversaw the photoshoot for the collaboration.

The mum-of-one captioned the story: “Behind the scenes…

“A sneak peek at the new @SmartworksCharity capsule collection shoot, ahead of the autumn launch.

“An initiative supporting the Smart Works collective which will equip women entering the work force with the key work wear essentials they need.”

The idea behind the range was to create a “capsule collection of more classic options for a workwear wardrobe”.

And the ‘behind-the-scenes’ clips appear to reveal what to expect from the clothing line, with a woman snapped modelling a classic black dress with a v-shaped neckline.

And on the photo reel another woman poses in a white shirt – one of Meghan’s wardrobe staples.

All the clothing, designed by Meghan’s friend Misha Nonoo, appears to reflect the Duchess’ chic, minimalist style.

Meghan herself is dressed casually in jeans, a blue striped shirt from Frank & Eileen and nude heels in the clips, set to Bill Withers’ 1977 hit, Lovely Day.

The clothing range will be hitting shelves later this year, in partnership with Marks & Spencer and John Lewis.

The mum to Archie Harrison announced the collaboration last month, after visiting the charity over the last year.

Writing in the September issue of Vogue, which she guest edited, Meghan explained why she decided to team up with the charity.

She said: “When you walk into a Smart Works space you’re met with racks of clothing and an array of bags and shoes.

“Sometimes, however, it can be a potpourri of mismatched sizes and colours, not always the right stylistic choices or range of sizes.

"To help with this, I asked Marks & Spencer, John Lewis & Partners, Jigsaw and my friend, the designer Misha Nonoo, if they were willing to design a capsule collection of more classic options for a workwear wardrobe.

"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.”

Smart Works helps women back into the world of work by providing them with new outfits, coaching and the confidence they need to shine at a job interview

Sussex Royal previously posted about Meghan’s new venture, saying: “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.”
