Following his daughter-in-law Meghan Markle's lead, his royal highness Prince Charles has now announced his own capsule collection.
Yes, you heard that right! Owing to their love for sustainability in fashion and helping a cause, the Prince’s Foundation, the charity that coordinates Charles’s donations, announced a partnership collection with Yoox Net-a-Porter.
The #ModernArtisanProject will equip young artisans with the skills to succeed in a fast-paced digital landscape.
Profits from the sale of the collection will be donated to @PrincesFound to support its charitable work.

The capsule collection will consist of 17 ensembles designed by fashion students and fresh graduates from the Politecnico di Milano. The clothing will be manufactured by six students in the traditional crafts and skills program at Dumfries House, which is the historic estate and educational center of the Prince’s Foundation.
The project will see these 12 Italian and British students create a sustainable luxury capsule collection that will be sold next year across all 4 of our brands @yoox, @netaporter, @mrporterlive and @theoutnet, in what will be a Group first in celebration of our 20th anniversary. pic.twitter.com/qjwXTVUeZe

“This project is the culmination of our Future Textiles initiative, which starts by giving school pupils an introduction to the textile industry and goes right through to the Modern Artisan project which offers an inspiring progression route to any young person wishing to enter the fashion and textile industry,” Jacqueline Farrell, the education director at Dumfries House, said in a statement.
