Os duques de Sussex revelaram imagens nunca antes vistas de Meghan Markle durante a sua gravidez. Depois da duquesa saltar para as bocas do mundo por ter assumido a edição de setembro da Vogue Britânica e de ter sido noticiada a criação de uma linha de roupa, pensada por Meghan, para apoiar a Smart Works, eis que foram publicadas as fotografias inéditas.
As fotos foram captadas durante uma visita de Meghan à Smart Works, tendo a duquesa expressado o orgulho que tem naquela instituição através da legenda das fotografias. A duquesa destacou também o facto de, apesar de receber muitas doações, ser muitas vezes difícil combinar tudo para que uma mulher se sinta confiante.
“Eram notavelmente uma combinação de itens e cores incompatíveis, que nem sempre eram as escolhas estilísticas certas ou tamanhos que não ‘se adequavam’ ao trabalho: fazer uma mulher sentir-se confiante e inspirada para uma entrevista de emprego”, contou.
Esta foi uma das razões que levou a duquesa a apoiar a Smart Works, tendo-se juntado a algumas marcas que a vão ajudar neste efeito a partir deste outono.

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.
