Meghan Markle gives a glimpse into her clothing line

The Duchess of Sussex is bringing her fashion sense to work wear.

Meghan Markle is a fashion icon. From the sustainable brown flats she loves to wear to the preppy white blazer she donned at Wimbledon and the eco-friendly fashion sneakers she wore for a royal tour, everything she wears becomes iconic.

So it only makes sense that Meghan create a clothing line of her own, and we’ve just been given our first glimpse.

The clothing line will benefit Smart Works, a charity which provides women with an outfit and training for a job interview.

In an Instagram Stories on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s account, Meghan has shared a compilation of clips from the photoshoot for the fashion line, set to Bill Withers’ Lovely Day.

We see Meghan standing at the top of stairs, greeting the women who will be taking part in the photo shoot with hugs.

The caption reads: “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,” continue the captions on the videos. “Coming soon…”

A second video shows scenes from the photoshoot itself, and it’s clear that Meghan has a hands-on approach. She’s seen checking the photographs, adjusting a belt on a model’s outfit and talking and laughing with all the models and staff on the shoot.

The videos show a very brief glimpse of the clothing, including a dark belted dress, what looks like a skirt suit, and a white shirt.

According to the Evening Standard, Meghan has created the clothing line in collaboration with Marks & Spencer, John Lewis, Jigsaw and US designer Misha Nonoo.

It looks like we’ll have to wait for autumn to see exactly what’s involved, but if Meghan’s own outfits are anything to go by, we know we’re in for classic and iconic clothes.
