Haile Selassie-I, emperor of Ethiopia from 1930 to 1974. He brought Ethiopia into the League of Nations and the United Nations. Haile Selassie played a very important role in the establishment of the Organization of African Unity in 1963 now African Union.
Haile Selassie-I is regarded as one of the most fashionable leaders of his time. Selassie was always sharply dressed, draped in his gold medallions. The white on white Haile Selassie ensemble shows purity and class, just as Selassie himself. The gold buttons and gold chain represents the nobility of the precious metal.
