As we know, Meghan Markle recently tried her hand at guest-editing the September issue of Vogue. It seems, however, she's also dipping in to the fashion industry.
Meghan used her position at Vogue to announce that she will be partnering with several different clothing lines.
While the collection is obviously aimed at those looking to emulate Meghan's style, it will also be linked to charitable causes.

At the start of the new year, Kensington Palace announced that Meghan Markle would be working with Smart Works, a charity designed to ensure that everyone has equal access to job opportunities and preparation for job interviews.
Markle announced she would be working with Marks and Spencer, John Lewis, Jigsaw, and designer Misha Nonoo to create the clothing line. For each piece of clothing sold, another will be donated to Smart Works, who will give the clothing to women in need.
Meghan had this to say about it
'It's the enthusiasm of the volunteers, the earnestness of the staff and, most of all, the blushing, bashful and beautiful smile that crosses a client's face when she sees herself in the mirror, that I have found so profoundly compelling," Markle explains. "Because in that moment, she feels special and emboldened.'

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.
