Meghan Markle lanza línea de ropa ideal para las mujeres que trabajan
Por Iván Hernández
Meghan Markle busca empoderar a las mujeres trabajadoras mediante su nueva línea de ropa y accesorios llamada ‘The Smart Set’, misma que creó de la mano de la organización Smart Works.
Todo lo que se recaude de la venta de esta colección será otorgado a dicha ONG que ayuda a mujeres de Inglaterra desempleadas a conseguir trabajo y les brinda atuendos conseguidos a través de donaciones para que realicen sus entrevistas de empleo.

We came together on the rooftop of @johnlewisandpartners with six of our wonderful clients, the incredible brands involved in the collection, Our Royal Patron HRH The Duchess of Sussex @sussexroyal and Smart Works volunteers and supporters. . Our Royal Patron said: “As women, it is 100% our responsibility to support and uplift each other.”. . After hearing inspiring words about the power of community and the role we can all play in each other’s success stories, we then listened to a panel discussion chaired by our Trustee, Tiffanie Darke. . Within the discussion, our client Kate commented; “Smart Works is what changed my year. They’re like a warm blanket. When you look in the Smart Works mirror, you see the person you want to be.”. . Today was a wonderful moment after many months of careful planning and we are so thankful to Our Royal Patron and the wonderful brands involved who have made this collection happen. #thesmartset Una publicación compartida de Smart Works (@smartworkscharity) el 12 Sep, 2019 a las 9:45 PDT

Ver esta publicación en Instagram Last month, The Duchess of Sussex surprised Smart Works clients during the capsule collection shoot in west London...Today, The Duchess, alongside @SmartWorksCharity - in partnership with @InsideJigsaw, @JohnLewisandPartners, @MarksandSpencer and @MishaNonoo - are incredibly proud to reveal to everyone, #TheSmartSet - a five piece capsule collection that will equip the Smart Works clients with the classic wardrobe pieces to help them feel confident as they mobilise back into the work space. • “Since moving to the UK, it has been deeply important to me to meet with communities and organisations on the ground doing meaningful work and to try to do whatever I can to help them amplify their impact. It was just last September that we launched the ‘Together’ cookbook with the women of the Hubb Kitchen in Grenfell. Today, a year later, I am excited to celebrate the launch of another initiative of women supporting women, and communities working together for the greater good. Thank you to the four brands who came together in supporting Smart Works on this special project - placing purpose over profit and community over competition. In convening several companies rather than one, we’ve demonstrated how we can work collectively to empower each other - another layer to this communal success story, that I am so proud to be a part of” - The Duchess of Sussex The collection – which features a shirt, trousers, blazer, dress and tote bag – will be on sale for two weeks starting today, with the objective of selling enough units to give Smart Works the essentials they need to help dress clients for the coming year! For every item bought during the sale of the collection, one will be donated to Smart Works, this 1:1 model allows customers to directly support the Smart Works women by playing a part in their success story - how they look and more importantly, how they feel.
