Supermodel and overall stunner, Naomi Campbell will hold another Fashion for Relief event this month – launching London Fashion Week on February 19th as New York Fashion Week comes to a close, aiming to raise money to help aid the Ebola crisis.
With the event set to be star-filled and promising a catwalk featuring her top model clique, Naomi’s night will see pieces from her designer friends in showcase, including items from fashion houses like Balmain, Dolce & Gabbana, Givenchy, Versace and Alexander McQueen. There will also be a live auction offering donated designer garments from her celebrity pals’ wardrobes, which will be sold to raise money for the Ebola Crisis Appeal and the Ebola Survival Fund.
Ms Campbell, a regular visitor of Kenya, launched her Fashion For Relief foundation back in 2005 to provide support for victims of Hurricane Katrina. It is no surprise though that the beauty has turned her attention towards the fight against Ebola, with Naomi having offered thoughts on the epidemic recently, telling Page Six;
“I’m scared, people don’t have a clear idea about what Ebola is.”
The supermodel also shared with Net-a-Porter;
“The next time I travel, I will have a mask, latex gloves, bleach and sprays. I travel so much, you have to do whatever you have to do to make yourself feel safe until we are told otherwise.
We at SPICE can’t wait to find out the extent of the event’s success, which will ultimately raise money through attendees’ ‘love of fashion.’ We also wish Naomi Campbell all the best with her amazing initiative and hope for a swift end to the Ebola crisis.
