Friday night marked the viewing and celebration of the first House of Waris for Forevermark Collection, "Waris in Africa: A Diamond Journey." Waris Ahluwalia was joined by a handful of friends for dinner at The Explorer's Club, including Olivier Theyskens, Max Snow, Vanessa Traina, Chelsea Leyland, Leigh Lezark, Liya Kebede and many more. The amazing collection included socially ethical diamond necklaces, earrings, and bracelets inspired by South Africa. Before guests headed to the after-party at Bar Nana, we got a chance to chat with the man of the hour about his experience in Africa, working with Forevermark, his acting career, and much more. Click through for our exclusive interview with Waris Ahluwalia from Friday night's event.
