A first hint at that 'commercial freedom' we were promised come the Great Schism. This isn't the worst idea, but strongly aligning with named brands is a bit iffy in my book. Let Smartworks be the lead org in this. And ask you friend to sit this project out. Your friends' businesses should not benefit from your activities as a royal patron.

Bingo.

Nailed it.

I hadn’t picked up on that but damn just when I thought she might do something scandal free. 

Not sure this is a really big deal.  Prince Charles used his sister-in-law Annabel Elliot to do the interior design work at Dumfries House.  People probably criticised that, too, but I don't think a royal's friends and relatives should be prevented from getting a gig as long as they are qualified and it's not kept secret.

So I totally get where you’re coming from but IMVHO purchasing goods or services from friends/family is a bit different.  The official interior designer for the Duchy is definitely off putting but another conservation.  It’s my opinion that the Meghan equivalent would be if Meghan bought and wore clothing from Misha and other friends (which she does). 

This collection will likely generate a great deal of income for Misha and is being disguised as a charity venture.  Now say the proceeds were all going to go to charity and we’d be having a totally different conservation...but they're not.

SmartWorks won't get any money, but I sure bet Misha and Meghan will!

Didn’t realise that the mirror idea was very similar to Elle Australia October 2015 which had a reflective paper type material as their front cover to represent a mirror - https://mashable.com/2015...mirror-cover/?europe=true

Interesting to see the list of partners - she's covered a bit of the gamut there in terms of market. Is the same stuff going to be sold at Marks and John Lewis and Jigsaw? How does that work? Marks does own brand stuff, as does Jigsaw, is it like a concession?

I will also be interested to see just how many pieces are produced for this little lark - Marks shoppers tend to skew older and just want sturdy undies, while the JL and Jigsaw shoppers there may be a subsegment that have heard of Mischa but never seen her stuff or don't really care. The UK retail market is a mess right now with old retailers dropped out left and center and the economy coming under pressure - I cannot imagine these folks are going to dedicate that much retail space to this. Also - doesn't this open her up to (likely) issues of sweatshop labor?

Exactly. At what price will the clothes be produced, and where, and at what price will they be sold? 

First and foremost, whoever is producing and selling the clothes will make a monetary profit. SmartWorks will only benefit marginally from this.

The initiative looks good on paper but there are question marks.

M&S have been leading the way with being an ethical brand but there are some areas where they are in trouble and not addressing it. For example the use of sweatshop workers in 2010 and the allegations that they used Syrian child refugees in 2016. Also they aren’t transparent with where their animal products come from in manufacturing of their clothing with cashmere, leather, etc.

I like shopping online at Marks and Sparks. Nice jeans, and cute dresses. Jigsaw isn't my thing and their clothes don't fit, they are all too large, so that would be a no-go for me.

They'll be produced in a sweatshop, surely. Nothing ethical about that, Meghan.

Sadly even if clothing is produced in a "healthier" environment,  there's never transparency about where the textile that created the clothes are made and those are usually awful conditions.  So brands can be "ethical" for PR but still use cheap fabric to offset the cost of more expensive labor.

More from the forthcoming Vogue. Features include,

Quote
How to feel good

A focus on ‘holistic’ approaches to health and well-being including a £60 Vitamin B skin patch, a £68 face mask an £80 face oil and a £237 watch-like device to improve sleep. It also plugs the Ilapothecary Spa in Kensington that Meghan and Harry visited when she was pregnant, particularly its £20 ‘Gong Bathing’ class – meditation to the sounds of crystal bowls and gongs.

Quote
Sarah Chapman

There is a full-page feature on Meghan’s personal skincare expert, Sarah Chapman, who helped her glow on her wedding day. It says: ‘If you have only one facial in your entire life, go to Sarah Chapman’.

Quote
Eco fashion

Sustainability is the latest buzzword, says Vogue, which advises its readers to ‘buy less, but buy better’. A round-up of eco-friendly items includes a pair of £115 Veja trainers, featuring recycled plastic uppers – a brand Meghan wore in Australia last year.

Nice work if you can get it...

So being on the front cover would be boastful but a whole magazine about her (which essentially what this is) isn’t?

Don't forget the £4398 week-long breathing workshop.  Whatever would we do without Meghan telling us how to breathe?

Lets hope her "new family" suggests she pulls her head in and stays in Windsor and off line for like the next 100 years . . . . if not they should stop paying her Givenchy bills ..... or she could "go home" and find someone else to fund her ..... oh and no one I know will be buying that magazine . .
