The Samburu Project’s Forever 21 International Fashion Collection Launch Party

Recently I had an opportunity to attend an exclusive launch party at the L.A. Mart for a sneak peak at The Samburu Project’s Forever 21 international fashion collection. For Spring 2012, Forever 21 joined forces with The Samburu Project, a Santa Monica based non-profit organization which drills freshwater wells in Africa.

The event showcased a Forever 21 pop up shop featuring the unique, colorful Give to Love. Love to Give Samburu fashion collection (which of course I scored a few pieces) and an exhibition of photography called The Face of Water which was absolutely beautiful and highlighted their efforts to bring clean, safe drinking water to people in Northern Kenya. Every day many children die worldwide due to the lack of access to clean, safe drinking water. Through the projects drilling initiatives, The Samburu Project provides a simple solution to this extraordinary problem.

In deciding what to wear to the event I knew I wanted a dress that was bright, colorful for Spring, sexy, and classy to suit the event. So of course I visited my favorite website for plus size dresses IGIGI.com and found the most amazing dress called the Renata Dress in Jade Green  As soon as I saw this dress I was in love. This dress said water to me with the beautiful color and had all the elements I was looking for…especially SEXY! The style of the dress is soooo me its ridiculous with the all over ruching heaven. The stretch jersey was super comfortable and hugged my curves all night long while mingling with the local supporters, celebrities, and Los Angeles social elite.

 

Needless-to-say the event was a complete success! Not only was I able to support a great cause, I was able to do so looking and feeling fabulous.
