Meghan (pictured above embracing people from the charity) has been praised for her work with female oriented campaigns
It states: ‘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.’
The post stated highlighted an article which will appear in this month’s British Vogue – which Meghan is guest editing
The inspirational post states that the new initiative will remind people that they are ‘in it together’
The post added that the initiative will be supported by ‘four generous brands who share the vision to empower the women of Smart Works’ as they venture into the job market.
It continued: ‘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.’
The post then went on to thank brands such as John Lewis and Partners, Marks & Spencer, Misha NoNoo and Jigsaw.
