In preparation for day 2 of my wedding festivities known as “Melse,” I have been looking for habesha kemis online. I remain largely unimpressed with what I’ve found online. Where can I buy stylish Ethiopian dresses online? I’m sure I’m not the only Mushirit out there who is asking…unfortunately I don’t have the finances to fly back to Ethiopia just to shop for dresses for me and my bridesmaids.
I was completely discouraged until one of my bridesmaids told me about a Facebook page owned by a young beautiful Ethiopian designer by the name of Senait Abraham.
I immediately requested her as a friend and I’m glad I did. Thanks to Facebook, Senait shares approximately 500 photos of gorgeous Ethiopian dress designs. I cannot believe how dedicated she is! She not only designs the outfits but she also models the clothing to market the work. You know what they say – if you want to do it right, you’ve gotta do it yourself!
She is also very approachable – just send her a Facebook message and she will reply to your questions. Better yet, call her directly! She openly provides her phone number and email address on the photos.
Here are a few photos of some of Senait’s designs that will take your breath away:
