UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie supports refugee artisans


"It was my kind of runway: the most beautiful girls, survivors with their heads held high, bringing forward their own designs and culture.” 

- UNHCR Special Envoy, Angelina Jolie, on her time at RefuSHE

On International Women's Day, we are celebrating alongside UNHCR Special Envoy, Angelina Jolie, and Harper's Bazaar. During her visit on World Refugee Day 2017, Angelina attended her very first fashion show at RefuSHE's Girls' Empowerment Project campus in Nairobi, Kenya.

"I thought the girls represented their culture and their craft in a way that was so impressive...they are women in full,” Angelina reflected. The celebration culminated in the Special Envoy joining RefuSHE artisans in song and dance.
