A photo slide showed Markle and women from Smart Works Charity, (the NGO she joined as a patron in January,) wearing outfits from the "Smart Set Collection," in black and white photos captured by the photographer, Jenny Zarins.

The accompanying lengthy caption revealed that the former actress also collaborated with the fashion brands, Inside Jigsaw, John Lewis and Partners, Marks and Spencer, and her New York-based fashion designer friend, Misha Nonoo.

In a statement by Markle, she noted that collaborating with communities and organizations doing meaningful work became vital to her since she moved to the UK.

The Duchess said she wants to help them in any way she can to amplify their efforts, hence the collection. She called it an initiative of women supporting women and gave an example of her "Together" cookbook with women from Hubb Kitchen in Grenfell.

In a post by Inside Jigsaw on Instagram, the fashion outlet shared a quote by the mom-of-one,

"Empower another woman and be a part of her success story. Not a handout, but a handheld."

The collection features shirts, blazers, a classic crepe shift dress from Marks and Spencer that retails for $24, and a tote bag by John Lewis that cost about $125.

Marks and Spencer noted in an Instagram post that for every outfit sold by them, and the other fashion outlets, one will get donated Smart Works.

The idea behind it is to create an avenue for people to be a part of the success story of Smart Works women.

The charity organization wrote on Instagram how excited they are to launch the Smart Set, and John Lewis is equally proud to have helped create the Smart Set Collection.

Misha Nonoo was not left out. The fashion designer announced the official launch of the collection noting that she's working with the Duchess to support women as they reenter the workforce.

The former "Suits" star revealed her collaboration with the New York-based designer in the September Issue of British Vogue which she guest-edited.

The Smart Set Collection will sell for only two weeks beginning from September 12, and it is truly a testament to women supporting women.
