NAOMI CAMPBELL’S FASHION FOR RELIEF HOMECOMING LIGHTS UP LONDON FASHION WEEK

Last night Naomi Campbellbrought her global charity event Fashion For Reliefback home to London. Staged at the British Museum in the heart of London Fashion Week, the evening opened with red carpet arrivals, followed by a fashion show which preceded a gala dinner and auction where prized art and designer items were sold to raise money for the Mayor’s Fund for London. Funds raised will go towards employability programs which offer support for young Londoners from low-income backgrounds. 

Guests from the world of fashion, music and entertainment who showed up in support include: Edward Enninful, Anna Wintour, Luke Evans, Naomie Harris, Pierce Brosnan, Billy Porter, Skepta, Adwoa Aboah, Alexa Chung, Ella Eyre, Maya Jama and more.  

Naomi Campbell said:“I’m truly happy to be bringing Fashion For Relief back to my home town London! We hear so much about the problems facing young people in the capital. One of the underlying difficulties young people have is education – or rather the lack of it. Without the opportunity to learn, they’re more likely to be trapped in cycles of poverty, poor health and forced labour. The fashion industry has really come together with FFR and has shown it’s not just bout looking good, it’s about being good and doing good.”

Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “I’m delighted that Naomi and Fashion For Relief have chosen to support the Mayor’s Fund for London. We share the belief that all young people, regardless of their background, should have the opportunity to fulfill their potential, and this support will make a big difference in the charity’s work to help young Londoners.” 

Swedish artist Seinabo Sey kickstarted the evening with a soulful performance before Naomi Campbell made her London Fashion Week homecoming on the runway, joined by Erin O’Connor, Adut Akech, Tiwa Savage and Damson Idris. For the grand show closer, the South London-born supermodel strutted out with 30 school students from West Norwood’s The Elmgreen School. Naomi invited the students to join her on the catwalk after meeting them in a school visit earlier this year. 

Grammy Award winning hip-hop icon Eve and rising star rapper Octavian provided the evening’s music entertainment. The glamorous gala dinner attended by 500 guests featured a charity auction with prized art items that were donated by Naomi’s industry contacts. Items up for bid include art pieces by Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin and Marina Abramović. The one of a kind Marina Abramović original sketch was made specifically for the auction this year. Dolce and Gabbana donated two items: the “Eupheme” georgette dress entirely embroidered with sequins and small bugle beads, and “Nausicaa” lurex lace cape and Chiffon dress. There were a few nods to Naomi in the auction too. Ellen Von Unwerth donated a signed black and white photograph she took of Naomi in 1990 from her personal collection. David Bailey and Mariano Vivanco also donated their iconic photographs of the supermodel, which were taken in 1989 and 2003 respectively. 

Founded by Naomi in 2005, Fashion For Relief has raised millions for disaster relief (UK floods in summer 2007, Hurricane Katrina, the Haiti earthquake, the Japanese earthquake and tsunami) and humanitarian causes around the world including child refugee crises, maternal health, the fight against Ebola, and more. Since its inception, Fashion For Relief has staged events in New York, London, Cannes, Moscow, Mumbai and Dar es Salaam. 

The British Fashion Council will be honouring Naomi with the Fashion Icon Award at The Fashion Awards 2019, taking place at the Royal Albert Hall, London, on 2 December. The award is in recognition of her incredible contribution to the fashion industry, her world-renowned career as a supermodel, as well as her philanthropic work with charities, and incredible efforts in creating a more diverse and equal future.

It’s a celebration of one of the most important albums of our time as well as a landmark in music/design crossover history.

In support of Save the Children and Time’s Up Sponsored by CHROME HEARTS®, Place Vendome and Bumble

Naomi Campbell will be returning to Cannes to host her charity fashion gala event Fashion For Relief on 13 May 2018, following the amazing success of last year’s event which raised vital funds for Save The Children. Guests in attendance for that event included Queen Rania Al-Abdullah of Jordan, Leonardo Di Caprio, Donatella Versace, Kate Moss, Uma Thurman, Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Heidi Klum and many more. Exciting names for this year’s event to be announced in coming weeks.

 

Fashion For Relief was founded in 2005 and has raised millions, supporting amongst others the fight against Ebola and relief after disasters such as the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, the Haiti earthquake, Hurricane Katrina, and child refugee crises. FFR has staged shows in London, New York, Cannes, Moscow, Mumbai and Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania.

 

This year’s Fashion For Relief theme is Race To Equality, which focuses on education, health and culture. FFR will support this year amongst other charities Save the Children and Time’s Up.

 

An international children’s charity, Save the Children fights every single day for children’s futures, making sure they survive, get protected, and have the chance to learn. Naomi worked with Save The Children last year when she went on a trip to the Za’atari camp in Jordan – home to 80,000 refugees, 50 per cent of which are made up of children.

 

Time’s Up is a unified call for change from women in entertainment and culture for women everywhere. This campaign addresses the systemic inequality and injustice in the workplace that have kept underrepresented groups from reaching their full potential.

 

Sure to be the jewel of the Cannes Film Festival calendar once again, Fashion For Relief is a charity event like no other – set in the picturesque Cannes Mandelieu Hangar and attended by over 1,000 VIP guests. The evening features Naomi and her celebrity friends hitting the catwalk, dressed by the most prestigious fashion houses, and a special live music performance.

 

The Fashion For Relief show will precede a gala dinner and live auction featuring special items donated by influential artists, designers, celebrities and brands who Naomi has personally asked to help.

The 40-year-old is a mother to a toddler, a leading celebrity stylist, a ‘The X Factor’ alumnus, a business owner, a wife and a mentor.

“I’m on my fourth job title right now. My whole career has been a process of elimination, if you’re lucky enough to try a bunch of stuff, do it– I’m either brave or foolish,” she says in the exclusive chat with Yahoo Style UK.

“I want my son to have two working parents – I know my routine influences him and I want him to see me as healthy and ambitious.”

A self-confessed “ideas person”, Grace speaks honestly with purpose and doesn’t bother with wasting words. She’s introspective while being self-assured rather than arrogant. Her confidence is infectious and empowering.
