The socially conscious clothing company EDUN was founded in 2005 by Ali Hewson and her husband Bono. EDUN’s vision is to create beautiful clothing while helping to build sustainable communities and encourage apparel production in Africa.
TheFind’s editors were lucky enough to attend the recent launch event of the EDUN pop-up store in San Francisco and view the collection in person. Guests at the event were enticed by the luxurious fabrics and striking cut-out details of the collection. The Spring/Summer ’09 collection from EDUN takes inspiration from “The majesty of the kingdom of Africa fused with the finesse of the French.” Sweaters knit from organic cotton add interest with open weave tribal patterns. Satin and silk are woven to create intricate patterns adding a luxe feel to free flowing silhouettes. Cut out motifs add a dazzling appeal to the sweaters and dresses.
