Accomplished supermodel and designer Liya Kebede joins Museum at FIT Assistant Curator of Costume Elizabeth Way to talk about lemlem, Kebede’s collection of women’s, men’s and children’s clothing, made entirely in Africa. The core collection is handwoven from natural cotton in Kebede’s native Ethiopia. Women artisans are at the heart of lemlem, and the brand is committed to connecting these communities to jobs, education and maternal health programs through the lemlem Foundation.
