Gucci, Michael Kors, Saint Laurent, and... Heshima Kenya! Angelina not only visited Heshima Kenya, she's wearing us too! As part of her visit to our Nairobi campus on World Refugee Day. Angelina Jolie watched a demonstration of the Maisha Collective's resist-dye design techniques. Our artisans presented her with our custom-created design, a stunning blackberry and white scarf, "The Angie". Angelina was visibly touched by the experience and the gift:
"Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your designs are simply beautiful."
Then, in true Heshima style, Angelina joined our girls for a fashion show. Surrounded by smiling Heshima girls, she announced,
"This is the first fashion show I've ever been to, and you girls are stunning and remarkable."
It was a day we will not soon forget, and as a way of commemorating this memorable occasion, we are pleased to share "The Angie" with our friends and supporters. We hope you'll buy one for yourself to wear or as a gift for friends. It's never been more fashionable to support Heshima Kenya! Support our organization while rocking the look of Angelina Jolie! All proceeds of "The Angie" go specifically to supporting our Heshima Kenya programs that Angelina herself visited and praised.
