NEW YORK – The Africa-focused clothing line founded by rocker Bono and his wife, Ali Hewson, has a fan in Chelsea Clinton.
Clinton, who works with the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Global Initiative, chatted with the label’s two visionaries Sunday night on the front row of Edun’s fall runway show.
“I just have such tremendous respect for everything that Ali and Edun have created in their continued commitment to fabricating in Africa, which I think is so important,” she said.
Does she think the fashion manufacturing base in Africa is strong enough for other companies to follow suit?
“Absolutely. I mean seven of 10 of the fastest-growing countries in most of the last 10 years have been in sub-Saharan Africa, so I think there is already vital fashion happening in Africa,” said the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
