SemSem’s Ramadan Collection with a Conscience

SemSem Ramadan 2017 crescent and stars black kaftan

SemSem’s Ramadan collection features flowing kaftans in crimson red silk chiffon and print crescent moons. The label’s founder and creative director, Abeer Al Otaiba, wife of the United Arab Emirates ambassador to the United States, highlights this collection to support The International Rescue Committee, which responds to humanitarian crises and notably promotes women and children’s health in fragile circumstances. “As a mother raising a young girl, it is hugely important for me to support and call attention to women supporting women,” she says. “The idea of giving back and being philanthropically active is bigger than corporate social responsibility – it is personal and it is how I operate day in and day out.”
