Forces for change: HRH The Duchess of Sussex guest-edits British Vogue image

We are so proud to be included in the seminal, September Edition of British Vogue guest-edited by our Royal Patron, HRH The Duchess of Sussex.

In the article, The Duchess writes:

“The reason I was drawn to Smart Works is that it reframes the idea of charity as community. It’s a network of women supporting and empowering other women in their professional pursuits.”

For the special issue, The Duchess brings together a group of inspiring women from all walks of life. From activists to artists, prime ministers to climate change champions, this group of incredible women are all changing the world for the better.

Kate Stephens, Smart Works CEO, comments:

“Our Smart Works family is flourishing under the Duchess’s patronage. We have dressed more women than ever before, and we have just had our best ever July, helping 27% more women across the UK than the same time last year. We want to help more women find their way to a Smart Works centre so that they may, in the words of the Duchess, be ready to take on the world, get a job and transform their lives“

The Duchess and Smart Works have more exciting plans in store (watch this space) but for now, we hope you’ll buy this very special copy #ForcesForChange edition of Vogue and be inspired by what you read. The copy can also be read online here
