Worship Wednesdays: Liya Kebede

Happy Hump Day everyone!

I hope you’ve all had a fantastic Easter weekend. I may have over indulged a lot a little over the long weekend, and am feeling like the Michelin Man at the moment. First world problems.

Moving right along- today we are worshipping the amazing Ethopian-born Liya Kebede (who I have adored for years). She has a startling beauty that makes her a runway and editorial favourite, and a great passion for giving back to the community where she grew up.

If you haven’t heard of the label ‘Lemlem’, it was launched by Liya Kebede in 2008. Here is an excerpt from the About page of the brand website www.lemlem.com:

 Supermodel / actress and former World Health Organisation’s Goodwill Ambassador for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health, Liya Kebede discovered that traditional weavers in her native country of Ethiopia were losing their jobs due to a decline in local demand for their goods and wanted to do something about it. Recognizing the beauty, quality and historic significance of their work, Liya started Lemlem in 2007 as a way to inspire economic independence in her native country and to preserve the art of weaving

I love the fact that Kebede has more than just a great passion for preserving this aspect of Ethiopian culture- she has the drive and the business smarts to see things through. A solid business model that is sustainable in the long term and creates local jobs is much better than simply creating a charity, IMHO.
