The line includes professional attire such as a blazer, tote bag and trousers. The launch came the day before London Fashion Week starts.
The Smart Set collection supports Smart Works. Meghan is royal patron of the charity that provides women with training and interview clothes.
Meghan said: "As women, it is 100% our responsibility, I think, to support and uplift each other."
The reception was one of her first royal engagements since the birth of her and Harry's son Archie in May.
