Model Liya Kebede and her daughter Raee,6, were spotted at the Alexander Wang Spring 2012 fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York.

Liya has her own “couture” line of women and children’s clothing called LemLem, which was inspired by her daughter:

“As a model, I learned so much about clothes and the making of a garment. I’m from Ethiopia, and on one of our trips we visited local weavers working in poor conditions who didn’t have a market for their products anymore. I was in a position to try to give them jobs, keep their art alive and also bring the sensibility of a unique garment to the West. That’s the whole picture of how Lemlem was created. I started with children’s clothes because I love shopping for my children. It also gives kids here something beautiful that was made in Africa(Source)
