Senhoa will hold their 2nd annual fashion fundraising event, Beyond the Beauty, at Malmaison, a stylish modern warehouse along Washington, DC’s Georgetown Waterfront. The event will kick-off Tuesday, September 16th 2014 at 7pm, with guest enjoying an epic night of music, cocktails, and a fashion show featuring models wearing clothing by local DC designers accessorized with Senhoa jewelry.

There will be an opportunity to shop Senhoa’s newest jewelry line, which will be revealed at this exclusive pre-launch party. Guests purchasing jewelry will enjoy wine sponsored by Napa Valley’s Trefethen Family Vineyards.

Inspired by traditional Cambodian weaving, the collection features Senhoa’s signature weaving technique to unite palladium plated seed beads. Set upon sparkling crystals by Swarovski, this enduring collection comprises statement pieces for Senhoa women all around the world, allowing them to take a stance and raise awareness against modern slavery.

The cost is $35 per person and includes one artisan cocktail. All guests will also have a chance to win a stunning piece of Senhoa jewelry through a raffle.

All proceeds from the event will support Senhoa’s operating budget and benefit users in Senhoa’s programs in Cambodia. Early intervention programs are Lotus Kids’ Club and Lotus Kids’ Club 2. Vocational training programs include Senhoa’s jewelry program, a social enterprise that provides young women with access to safe and secure employment and educational support.

Senhoa is both a non-profit and a jewelry and fashion brand with a passion to create opportunities for survivors and vulnerable persons of human trafficking and sexual exploitation.
