hey Liya, you rock! I would be happy to showcase your men’s line
The Shema industry and the city of Dire Dawa have been victims of the times. Shema and the beautiful Tilet, and its producers, the indegenious Dorze tribe, and their rich tradition of studious weaving that kept alive what was once the code of dress given to Aaron from God symbolizing the tribes of Israel have somehow disappeared. The same can be said of the romantic and Kiremet getaway city, Dire Dawa. The fact that the delicately woven Shema and the beautiful Tilet is making a comeback albiet in limited scale at a department store near you is a great news. Mrs. Kebedes entrapenual spirit and effort, we hope, succeeds because her whole idea is a noble one in keeping the tradition going and her desire to help her people back home. G o o d L u c k!
And on the day of the Lord’s sacrifice— I will punish the officials and the king’s sons and all who array themselves in foreign attire.
She is a super person in everything she does. I wish her all the success. Go sister!
I named my 3 years old doughter after your name, you make every Ethiopian proud. Keep up the good work.
She also have internal beauty which is the main cause of her success.
Good heavens! Aren’t they beautiful, I usually don’t comment on fashion shows or clothing in general, because of my believes that, beauty, choice of styling or colors are on the eyes of the beholder. However this styling and the looks of those kids and Liya are cute, beautiful and absolutely gorgeous.

Comment from: ethio [Visitor] is really a sick one. Some of you people need a real psychiatric help. Your getto type comments and usage of language has no place in such a kind of forum. But you may be crying out loud for some type of medical help. So I am cautious on judging you.
you could have ejected ethio at 29:37, at least to Liyaa.
very filthy guy…
any way, Mrs. Liya Kebede remains our beauty queen !
Promoting Ethiopian tradition and culture, doing social benefits..
One of the few tall Ethiopian girls, good for her what she is doing sounds right to me.
Ethiopians need to mix with South Sudanese because your all short like Chinese.
Some times I’m afraid of stepping on you
Liya - You are beautiful, in and out. May God continue to bless your work!
Isn’t Kassy the luckiest man on this planet?
Best wishes to all your family.
