Bindi Irwin, daughter of “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin, took to the cat walk in Vegas to promote her kids clothing range. At the tender age of nine the New York Times has dubbed little Bindi the Shirley Temple of wild life conservation. She is known by most as an experienced conservationist, animal rights activist, successful television personality and the newest child star to jump on the eco – fashion bandwagon.
Bindi appeared at the world’s largest fashion trade show, python in hand and all smiles, to show case her fashion in a bid to motivate kids to protect and conserve the environment. I’m sure getting a slice of the $34 billion a year children's clothing market wouldn’t hurt either. Her new show, Bindi The Jungle Girl has already made waves among the American market, and her fashion line is predicted to do just that.
The Bindi International fashion line, is not designed by the jungle girl herself, but created by Queensland-based designers Melanie Finger and Palmina Martin. Her clothing ranges from new born to ten years, and that means little Bindi only has one more year to wear her ethical line before she gets too old.
The spring/summer 2008 line consists of 130 pieces as well as carrying four themes, “Green is the new black which promotes koala conservation, Baby Warrior, which offers fun animal prints for babies, Punk Warrior which enables kids to protect animals and the environment; [and lastly] Industrial Cowgirl and Cowboy, which shows the beauty of creation enhanced by technology,” reported The Daily.
Bindi also has her own tee shirt line, where she helped to create the slogans, "Green is the new black", "Extinct stinks" and "Save me, plant a tree" reported The Age. Profits from her tee shirt sales are set to go to environmental causes.
