I absolutely love Liya Kebede. Just look at her! She always manages to look both adorable and sophisticated. And it sounds like she will be applying those qualities to a line of children’s clothing called LemLem, which means “to bloom” in Amharic, a Semitic language from Kebede’s native Ethiopia.
Expected to launch early next year, LemLem is geared primarily toward children aged three months to 10 years old. All the teeny garments will be handmade in Ethiopia and combine some traditional weaving and embroidery techniques with modern silhouettes - sounds really interesting! And yes, Liya has two tots of her own - a six-year-old son named Suhul and a two-year-old daughter, Raee - who I'm sure are her muses.
