A while back we posted Watch Cut’s 100 Years of Beauty in 1 Minute series of both white and black American style. Ever since then, we’ve been a fan of the series and was always excited to see what country was going to be covered next. After presenting countries like India, Korea, Mexico, Russia, I started to wonder when they were going to cover an African country, mainly Ethiopia since that’s the home team. Sure enough, they did just that! Watch below 100 Years of Ethiopian Beauty.
Here’s the behind the scenes research on how the stylists gather information and inspiration for each look.
It’s so dope seeing the rise of Ethiopian culture in today’s pop culture. Our food, clothing, and even women have now become “trendy.” Although I would rather it be Ethiopians capitalizing off of this new “trend,” it’s still cool to see our culture being appreciated for it’s beauty.
