Style clearly runs in the family.

Activist Ali Hewson made a rare public appearance with her two daughters, Eve (24), an actress and Jordan (26), editor of Global Citizen, at Edun's New York Fashion Week showcase.

Ali and husband Bono set up the brand in2005 to promote sustainable employment and trade in Africa  and yesterday's showing marked another critically acclaimed, ethical collection from the superstar backed fashion house.

The trio are rarely spotted at showbiz events together, instead choosing a more low-key life. Their last public appearance was a pre-fall dinner for the brand in London in December 2014.

A seemingly ageless Ali was glowing in an all black ensemble, while Eve showed off her taut tum in a crop top and textured trousers and Jordan took after her mother in a classic black midi dress.

"Can I have this for Christmas? @EDUN_NY Congrats to my mum for putting on such a killer show! #prouddaughter #nyfw," Eve wrote on Twitter with a snap of the show.

Musician Michael Stipe and supermodel Liya Kebede were among the other famous faces in attendance.
