Coolest Clothes of 2011, why thank you!

"In a sea of blinged-out girls' clothes, I found my life preserver in designer Beth Miles' spring collection..." 

Thank you, Cool Moms, we love your support!

Cheers to Victoria Beckham...

...for adoring ses petites mains.

Don't expect baby Beckham to be decked out in 
trendy designer duds unless they have a classic feel.  
The former Posh Spice told WWD, 
"I love the French clothes for little girls, 
I like little girls to look like little girls."

And so does ses petites mains, Victoria.  
Thanks for including us in your wish list, we're honored!

ses petites mains & Indego Africa fundraiser

ses petites mains is honored to be included at 
the Indego Africa silent auction, 
as part of their 4th Annual Celebration & Fundraiser,  
December 9, 2011 in Manhattan.
Change. Empowerment. Innovation.  
That's what Indego Africa is all about. 
They work to create long-term solutions to poverty in Africa.  

If you happen to be in New York City, be part of the solution (and fun).  

The  “Ibirori” fundraiser in NYC takes place on 
Friday December 9, 2011
8:00-11:00 pm
the Cristin Tierney Gallery 
546 West 29th Street 
(between 10th & 11th Avenue)

Come eat great food, enjoy an open bar, indulge in the silent auction, discover gorgeous—and practical—handicrafts made by women working in cooperatives in Rwanda.  

With each purchase you make, you are helping these women 
take a step out of poverty towards more education, decent wages, and a healthier life. 
How you ask? By Indego Africa's fair trade process. 
Women lovingly create these items, and then we bring them to the U.S. 
and sell them at fair prices. The profits go right back to 
helping these women by providing long-term training programs.
Indego Africa currently partners with twelve artisan co-ops of women in Rwanda. The co-ops are independent, for-profit businesses that consist of more than 400 remarkable women, many of whom cope with HIV/AIDS; suffer from psychological trauma; have little formal education; care for several children, including orphans from the 1994 Genocide; and are the sole provider in their household. Before partnering with Indego, 93% of the women earned less than 550 RwF (US$1.00) per day — typically by carrying water on an unreliable basis. 
Indego's  work has been recognized by the likes of Harvard Business School, Goldman Sachs 10,000 Women Program, and iconic fashion designer Nicole Miller. Our corporate and nonprofit partners include Generation Rwanda, Vision Spring, Amazon, Anthropologie and many more. (And yes, we'd love to add your name to the list.
