Designer of the Day…Lemlem

I’ve got a really great designer for light & airy summerwear, Lemlem. The name is Amharic for thriving or blooming and that is certainly what this African collection is. The line was started by Ethiopian model Liya Kebede and is completely produced by local weavers. This in turn provides jobs and brings income to the community. Plus, the beauty that is Ethiopian handicraft is preserved and made into goregeous garments.
