Launching London Fashion Week with a show full of stars, supermodel Naomi Campbell took the catwalk yesterday for her Fashion For Relief showcase, organised to raise awareness and funds for the Ebola crisis.
The stunner, who launched her Fashion For Relief project back in 2005 to help those affected by Hurricane Katrina, said of last night’s event;
“Tonight has been incredible and I am so thankful to everyone who has been involved to make the show such a brilliant success.”
As we expected when the initiative was first announced (read about that, here), Ms Campbell brought top names from her fashion circle to the runway, including her fellow Burberry campaign star Jourdan Dunn, British designer, Dame Vivienne Westwood and Tyra’s ex-beau, model Rob Evans.
Both Jourdan and Naomi (see their campaign together, here) rocked multiple looks on the runway, with SPICE favourites being the metallic two-piece Ms Dunn was spied in and the glittering gold trench-dress that hostess with the mostest, Ms Campbell shimmied down the ramp in.
Items had been donated by Naomi’s celebrity and designer friends, including those at Givenchy, Azzedine Alaia, Stella McCartney, Balmain, Marchesa and Versace, with garments auctioned off to raise funds for the fight against Ebola – something Ms Campbell, as a philantrophist and frequent traveller to Africa, is very passionate about.
Following the showcase, which was full of fun and saw numerous well-known faces in attendance, the model said;
“The fight to raise awareness and bring aid to those affected by Ebola is a cause that I am so passionate about.
I sincerely hope the funds raised from tonight’s show will hopefully make a difference to those affected by this terrible disease.”
We at SPICE congratulate Naomi on her success with this latest event and invite you to take a look at some more images from the model’s Fashion For Relief Showcase at London Fashion Week, below;
