    Edun

    März 30th, 2015

    Edun, global fashion brand, founded 2005 by Ali Hewson and Bono. When first founded, Edun’s mission was to promote fair-trade production and the economy in Africa. First sourcing the majority of their production in Africa, the company struggled with delayed deliveries and a lack of quality, which led to stores dropping their product and decreasing sales. In 2009, Hewson and Bono sold 49% of their company to LVMH which led to changes in management, design and sourcing. With a new head of design Edun launched their first runway presentation in 2013 at New York Fashion Week and has thereby started gaining a new reputation and expansion. Eduns design is strongly influenced by African culture in combination with sharp European tailoring.
