Actress Eva Longoria hosted a very special evening on Saturday, February 7, celebrating femininity, and empowering women through microfinance.

Lingerie Miami was an evening of fashion that included a catwalk show of Europe’s finest couture lingerie labels.

The show was organized by the 7Bar Foundation, an organization that pledges to raise US$2million per year, creating a beneficiary fund for designated countries through its annual events – Lingerie Miami, NYC, LA, Las Vegas, London and Paris – and aims to help break the cycle of poverty for women and children through sustained investments in reputable microfinance institutes.

“What it does is provide small loans to impoverished women to help them come out of poverty,” said 7Bar’s founder, Renata Black. “So we teach them a skill and then we give them a loan and through this, they themselves come out of poverty. So you never give anything for free.”

Held at Vizcaya in Bal Harbour, proceeds from the event will be invested in women living for under $1 (US) per day in seven countries including Colombia, the United States, Haiti, Jamaica and India.
