MEGHAN Markle released more details about the charitable workwear line she’s launching on Instagram – but fans pointed out the name of the organisation was spelt wrong.
The Duchess of Sussex recently announced she’s teaming up with charity Smart Works, in partnership with Marks & Spencer and John Lewis, to create a capsule collection.
The new venture focuses on women's workwear, and more details were published on their Sussex Royal Instagram page today – which included an awkward typo.
The lengthy post spelled the name of the charity wrong, calling it ‘Smart Works Chairty’, which has since been changed.
But fans quickly spotted the embarrassing blunder, claiming they couldn’t access the charity’s page when they tried to click the link.
The typo was mocked in the comments, with one person saying: “Great initiative, but u think you misspelled charity.[sic]
Someone else said: “Incredible idea, absolutely behind this!
“Tried to click on the Instagram link for @smartworkscharity but it was mis-spelt, would be great to rectify so people can properly follow this fantastic charity.”
And a third wrote: “@smartworkscharity tagging you as there seems to be a typo in the post.”
The latest Instagram upload said they were “proud” to be supporting a “very special” initiative.
The organisation helps women back into the workplace by providing them with new outfits, coaching and the confidence they need to shine at a job interview.
It said: “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 37-year-old wrote about her new venture in the September issue of Vogue which she is guest editing.
She said: “When you walk into a Smart Works space you’re met with racks of clothing and an array of bags and shoes. Sometimes, however, it can be a potpourri of mismatched sizes and colours, not always the right stylistic choices or range of sizes.
"To help with this, I asked Marks & Spencer, John Lewis & Partners, Jigsaw and my friend, the designer Misha Nonoo, if they were willing to design a capsule collection of more classic options for a workwear wardrobe.
"Taking the idea further, many of the brands agreed to use the one-for-one model: for each item purchased by a customer, one is donated to the charity.
"Not only does this allow us to be part of each other’s story, it reminds us we are in it together."
Smart Works helps more than 2,000 women each year back into work, with two offices set up in London.
More than one in two clients they help succeed at their interview, and if they’re offered the job women are able to return to receive more items too build a work wardrobe.
