George Cortina for Porter Magazine
George Cortina styled Liya Kebede for the Summer 2019 cover story of Porter Magazine! Photographed by Cass Bird at the Cuixmala hotel in Mexico, Liya Kebede the "accidental entrepreneur" modeled sleek swimwear from designers such as VDM The Label, Abysse, FAE, Now_Then, and her own brand Lemlem. The fashion story highlighted several eco-friendly and sustainable swimwear brands, which craft their suits out of recycled materials and partner with charities that give back to our land and oceans. The swimwear worn by Kebede was paired with stunning gold bangles by Jennifer Fisher and Soko. Kebede spoke with Lizzie Widdicombe about her beginnings in the fashion industry, growing up in her hometown of Addis Ababa, her love of literature—poetry, fiction, and The New Yorker—and her brand Lemlem which is debuting swimwear in the near future.
