Reem’s showroom is such a glamorous setting for such a party with gorgeous dresses everywhere you turn. It perfectly compliments the piece from SAME SKY, which was created in 2009 as a trade-not-aid initiative that employs African women living with HIV/AIDS as artisans, teaching them to make beautiful hand crocheted necklaces and bracelets and provides a platform to sell in the global marketplace.


As always, 100% of all net-proceeds from the sale of SAME SKY’s jewelry go to employing more women artisans and expanding the program. SAME SKY jewelry is worn by many celebrities including Meryl Streep, Alicia Keys, Fergie, Queen Latifah, Goldie Hawn, Jessica Alba, Ben Affleck, Akon and Victor Cruz, among others and retails in a variety of price points making it the perfect fashion accessory and holiday gift.
