Designer: Lem Lem

Semira off-the-shoulder dress


Lem Lem is an artisan-driven ethical brand founded by supermodel Liya Kebede, who was inspired to launch the brand following a trip to her native Ethiopia. Meaning to bloom and flourish in the Ethiopian language of Amharic, Lem Lem is committed to elevating artisanship and expanding production and jobs across Africa. The collection of breezy essentials is handwoven from natural cotton in Ethiopia. Each Lem Lem piece begins in the hands of local artisans that use traditional African motifs and techniques to create the beautiful, modern designs that the brand is known for. Women are at the heart of Lem Lem and the brand is committed to helping them thrive both within its workshops and beyond.
