The video beautifully captures the unique styles of women in Ethiopia through each decade, beginning in 1900. From the scalp-tight braids of the 1910s to the sleek and straight style of the 2000s, every look has distinct inspiration, features and flair.
In a behind-the-scenes video, Karen Maniracho, the video researcher for the project, identified each of the iconic Ethiopian women she drew inspiration from to help create the looks, including Assegedech Assefa, Ethiopia’s first female pilot, Dina Fikadu, crowned Miss Ethiopia in 2006 and Empress Menen Asfaw among others.
