Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex recently new mom of little Archie, edited the September issue of British Vogue as guest editor, the first to get this important title.

The issue, “Forces for Change” follows a very precise thread; on the cover you can admire the portraits taken by Peter Lindbergh of 15 women engaged in changing the framework of our contemporaneity, through themes such as the struggle for independence, female empowerment, to arrive at the crucial issue of mental health, that of discrimination and privilege. Among the 15 portraits there is also a mirror, which invites the reader to reflect his face. An intelligent solution that metaphorically drives action and change.

"In formulating the content of the Forces for Change issue, I knew that I wanted to create a magazine that would speak not just to where we are, but to where we hope to be," the duchess stated. "Throughout these pages you'll find Commonwealth designers, ethical and sustainable brands, as well as features with designers not about clothes but about heritage, history and heirloom."

The news coincides with the duchess' decision to work on a capsule collection in collaboration with the brands she selected for the launch of a new line. The duchess worked in partnership with Marks & Spencer, John Lewis & Partners, Jigsaw and designer Misha Nonoo. The profit of the collection will be donated to Smart Works, an association for which Meghan has been appointed Royal Patron. Smart Works helps women who need it by selecting the right clothes for a job interview.

“The reason I was drawn to Smart Works is that it reframes the idea of charity as community, which, for me, is incredibly important” Meghan stated “it’s a network of women supporting and empowering other women in their professional pursuits.”
