In between sashaying down several runways for New York Fashion Week and promoting Fox’s “Empire,” (she plays a cougar,if you’re wondering) Naomi Campbell threw her own fashion show on Saturday.
The iconic supermodel gathered her famous friends–Tyson Beckford, Mary J. Blige, Rosario Dawson, Cassie, Paris Hilton, Kelly Osbourne and Michelle Rodriguez–to slay the “Fashion For Relief” runway in New York.
The charity show is to raise awareness and dollars for Ebola relief. Yes, Ebola is still relevant despite it not being reported on the news. Yes, the fight against Ebola still matters, and so does the Bring Back Our Girls campaign. Remember that?
I digress. Naomi Campbell will hold a second “Fashion for Relief” show tomorrow during London Fashion Week.
Naomi is not letting that fierce runway walk go to waste, she’s using her stellar strut to raise awareness for Ebola relief.
The supermodel is putting together a number of fashion shows to raise money to treat the deadly disease that’s devastating West African countries.
And that’s not all. Naomi is also opening a charity shop at Westfield London Mall where she’s hocking her own merch (you know that gear is fleek.) and some of her model pals’ stuff too.
Naomi had this to say about her fashion meets charitable efforts:
“I’m incredibly excited to return to Westfield London to launch the pop-up store. Raising awareness of Ebola and educating on its prevention its crucial to help prevent the spread of this deadly disease. We hope the Fashion for Relief store will contribute to the much needed funds and awareness, while offering people the unique chance to bag some stunning designer outfits and accessories.”
For the lucky London towners that can take advantage of this worthy cause, take note, it’s only available from November 28th to December 4th.
Philanthropy is a nice color on this iconic beauty. As is the other celebs–Idris, Alicia Keys–lending their voice to end the stigma of Ebola being a death sentence in a PSA video below.
