Edun Silk Twill Dress

Recently I had the chance to visit the Grammy Style Studio to get a sneak peak at the hottest designers catering to the stars this year. I spotted two designers that were so worthy of a mention that they deserved their own spotlight. First up: Edun.
Edun is a brand that I first found out about right here at Stiletto Jungle. I read an article on the Edun ONE t-shirt and how Bono and his wife, Ali Hewson, had started a socially conscious clothing line to help fight the extreme poverty in Africa by encouraging others to do business and improve working conditions and build sustainable communities in Africa. This cause hit home for me, and I absolutely wanted to participate in some way. They ended up selling tens of thousands of t-shirts worldwide and the Edun label was born.
This was my top priority label when I arrived at the Grammy Style Studio; I couldn’t wait to check out their new tees and see what else the company has offered since the ONE t-shirt. Imagine my surprise when Ali Hewson herself was there to explain all the pieces and the Edun mission! I was absolutely mesmerized when she talked about how certain pieces were worked on by workers in different parts of Kenya or Lesotho and I realized that this brand is not only a socially conscious one, but they are making a difference in the world in a very direct and immediate way. 50% of the Edun Spring/Summer 08 line is organic, and each piece has a unique story.

Also check out the Edun Live tee line, which features the fabulous tees from the ONE collection, made of 100% African cotton. I can tell you from experience this is one very soft tee.
