Campaigning rocker Bono's wife is following in his charitable footsteps, by launching her own fair trade fashion label.

ALI HEWSON's EDIN collection will be made entirely from fabric produced by fair trade workers.

The 43-year-old has reportedly recruited a famous designer and hopes to have her clothes in American stores next month (FEB05), before launching it in her native Ireland.

Bono - real name PAUL HEWSON - recently hinted at his wife's plans, "Right now she's looking at a new way of doing business in apparel. It may be one of the biggest brands in the next few years, so watch out."
