Next month, on Thursday 19th February at 8 PM on London Fashion Week, taking place at BFC HQ Somerset House, Naomi Campbell will be continuing to raise funds for the Ebola victims in a form of a charity catwalk show. She started her charity last September by opening her pop-up shop in London and now she’s taking it up a notch by taking the matter to London Fashion Week.
Fashion for Relief will feature Campbell and her friends wearing outfits donated by the most prominent fashion brands such as Versace, Vivienne Westwood, Givenchy, Stella McCartney, Balmain, Dolce &Gabbana, AzzedineAlaia, Marchesa and Alexander McQueen. Judging by experience, there is no doubt that we will be seeing many well-known faces strutting down the catwalk. Past catwalks included supermodels such as Kate Moss and Diane von Furstenberg and artists such as Beyonce.
And as if the catwalk show isn’t more than enough, there will also be a special Fashion for Relief auction on the same night as the show,and it will include items given by fashion houses and international artists. As for the money raised on the auction, it will be going to the Disaster Emergency Committee: Ebola Crisis Appeal. Last time a Fashion for Relief event was able to raise more than $2.1 million, the objective was to help the victims of the Haitian earthquake.
The famous supermodel has expressed her excitement over the event, “I’m thrilled to return to London to open London Fashion Week for this very special cause close to my heart,” Campbell started. “The Fashion for Relief Show is an incredible event and this year we hope to raise more money than ever before. Raising awareness of Ebola is crucial to help prevent the spread of this deadly disease.”
