As you may know, Nude Diamond had the privilege of being a partner of the Annual AltaMed Gala, this year. The gala, which was just held on March 27 at the prestigious Wilshire Hotel, in Los Angeles turned out be a great success, both in attendance and in funds raised.
After the gala, we met with AltaMed gala’s co-chair and Nude Diamond ambassador, Gabriela Dias. Here’s her exclusive interview!

Gabriela, how did you connect with Nude Diamond?
GD – I saw some of Nude Diamond pieces on Instagram and I reached out to Fabrice (ed. Fabrice Elfassy, Nude Diamond co-founder). I thought the sophistication of Nude Diamond’s collection was exquisite.
What made you want to collaborate with Nude Diamond? What do you like about this brand?
GD – I am all about high quality, well designed products. I love the simplicity and sophistication of Nude Diamond’s style.
This year, you were co-chair of the Annual AltaMed Gala; what is AltaMed and what was this prestigious event all about?
GD – I am very thankful for the opportunity to work with AltaMed. AltaMed is the nation’s largest community health center with nearly 50 locations throughout Los Angeles and Orange Counties. With the support of brands such as Nude Diamond, during the Gala we raised money to continue helping families and providing health care for AltaMed’s 190,000 annual patients.
Nude Diamond was a partner of the AltaMed Gala this year; how were they involved?
