These are decent price points for the collection (in line with what most folks I know in my line of work pay for professional clothing) and very simple but versatile pieces that will work for many different body types.

A+ job to Meghan, the Smart Works crew and the designers.

This was an excellent launch! I loved everything that was offered. I loved her speech, especially when she broke down the difference between charity and community. That spoke deeply to me because I’ve done that, but never thought about it being about the community. Just amazing stuff from Meghan. I’m proud of her as a fellow American and a black woman. Well done, DoS!

I don’t think any other news organisation has covered this as extensively as the DM with over 100 photos including the very dramatic photo of a big deep deep curtsey of welcome from what seems a John Lewis partner (not called an employee!) which is at odds with the company’s egalitarian ethos and as one commentator put it:
“I used to be a proper royalist but an elderly woman curtseying to someone who's husband is sixth in line to the throne is just wrong on so many levels in the 21st century. Starting to turn republican I think.”

A smashing success of a launch, I should say! I hope the collection continues to sell well.

Meghan is so articulate. I think this may be her best royal speech yet.

I saw a picture of a red striped shirt dress earlier today from the collection. Does anyone know where I can go to purchase it?

What a great successful launch for this clothing capsule. Meghan is such a captivating, great public speaker, and imho this project again showed how passionate she's about trying to do her part in helping others. I'm 100% sure this clothing capsule will sell out fast.
