The launch came the day before London Fashion Week starts.

Meghan Markle made her return to work Thursday after maternity leave, launching her capsule collection with Smart Works charity The Smart Set.

'She's played it safe in terms of the design of the pieces - they're timeless and classic, but I would have liked to have seen her include more colour. 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.

"Since moving to the United Kingdom, it has been deeply important to me to meet with communities and organizations on the ground doing meaningful work and to try to do whatever I can to help them amplify their impact".

For every item purchased, another will be donated to Smart Works, a charity dedicated to helping unemployed women get back into the workplace.

"Thank you to the four brands who came together in supporting Smart Works on this special project - placing objective over profit and community over competition", Meghan said.

Although Duchess Meghan has only been a member of the royal family for a short time, she is paving the way to create a similar impression to the one Princess Diana left on the world.

Markle attended the event and even gave a speech, praising the work of Smart Works, an organization that helps outfit women for their job interviews.

"I've got to get back to the baby, it's feed time", she told a group of women, referencing her 5-month-old son, Archie.

So she approached her friend and designer Misha Nonoo, the retailers John Lewis and Marks & Spencer (chosen "because I have worn a lot of their clothes since I moved to the UK"), and also the Jigsaw chain because she was "really touched" by the message "in celebration of immigrant culture in this country" of the brand's award-winning Love Immigration campaign. She was greeted at the launch by Jo Bennett, head of buying women's wear & accessories at John Lewis & Partners, and Kate Stephens, CEO of Smart Works.

This Thursday, September 12, the royal regarded stylish in a white gown, shirt, black trousers, and tan heels that matched her belt. More precisely it's about the launch of a work capsule wardrobe range for the not-for-profit organisation Smart Works.

Susie Hasler, a fashion stylist who runs Styled By Susie, specialising in real women whose body shapes have changed due to having children or the menopause, weight gain or loss, agreed that the collection reflected her own style.

"And you may not ever meet that person, but you know when you put on that blazer or that shirt or you carry that tote or put on those pants and that dress, that some other woman on the other side of this country is wearing that piece because you made that purchase".
