The Duchess of Sussex has been very busy lately. The new mom recently guest-edited the September issue of British Vogue where she revealed her plans to venture into the fashion industry.

Markle will be teaming up with designer Misha Nonoo for a line of women’s workwear that will benefit Smart Works, a U.K charity that provides unemployed women with clothing and tools to get back in the workplace.

“For each item purchased by a customer, one is donated to charity,” Markle wrote in British Vogue, “Not only does this allow us to be part of each other’s story, it reminds us we are in it together.”

Markle is no stranger to designer dresses or charitable causes, so this pairing seems right up her alley. In January, Markle teamed up with Smart Works to help style a woman for a job interview and was announced as a “royal patron” for the charity.

The line is set to launch in September and is also in collaboration with U.K. retailer Marks & Spencer, U.K. department store John Lewis & Partners and U.K. fashion brand Jigsaw.
