Fashion with a cause.

The moment we've been waiting for has finally arrived - Duchess Meghan's clothing collection has officially launched, and to celebrate, we're seeing the royal like we never have before.
The Duchess, who officially launched her brand new workwear capsule collection on September 12, has celebrated the milestone by sharing a series of amazing never-before-seen pictures - and we cannot stop ogling at them!
Meghan welcomed her new baby Archie at the beginning of May, and since then, the Duchess has been laying low, with only several fleeting public appearances with husband Prince Harry.
With this in mind, seeing Meghan in her element in the gorgeous new pictures was made all the more special.
The images were taken as she attended the official fashion shoot for her new clothing collection.

Named Smart Set, the Duchess' brand new capsule collection brought together leading British brands Jigsaw, John Lewis & Partners, Marks & Spencer and Misha Nonoo.
The five-item capsule features a blazer and cigarette-style trousers from Jigsaw, a smart leather tote bag in rust and black from John Lewis & Partners, a black dress from Marks & Spencer, and a crisp white shirt from Misha Nonoo, a close friend of Meghans, famed for pioneering 'the capsule wardrobe'.
Meghan is no doubt absolutely thrilled to to launch the collection, the designs of which are strikingly similar to her own iconic style.

Meghan's work with charity Smart Works was formerly announced at the beginning of this year when it was revealed to be one of her patronages as a royal family member.
The charity works to help vulnerable women to gain skills and confidence to get back into the workforce, as well as dressing them for job interviews.
Meghan's special collection will be sold in a 'one-for-one' basis, so for any item purchased, another is donated to Smart Works.
In her recent guest edit of British Vogue, Meghan explained the initiative in a feature about her work with the charity: "Not only does this allow us to be part of each other's story, it reminds us we are in it together."

Meghan shares stirring statement

Meghan also delivered a statement on the day of the exciting launch, which she also read at the afternoon event.
In the poignant speech, the royal revealed that her project with Smart Works has been significant in moulding her experience in 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," she said.
The royal also mentioned her work with the Hubb Community Kitchen, whom she developed a cookbook, Together, with - it was released late last year.
The book was made with women who had been affected by the Grenfell Tower tragedy in London.
"Now, one year later, I am excited to celebrate the launch of another initiative of women supporting women, and communities working together for the greater good," the Duchess said.
"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."
