Naomi Campbell is increasingly a public figure and as a part of that aura she’s had a longstanding commitment to charity. Since 2005 the famed runway walker has brought models and celebrities to a runway of her own to put on fashion shows to benefit those who have been victims of natural disasters. It started with Hurricane Katrina and in 2011 it was the Japanese tsunami. This season the supermodel chose the Ebola crisis.
As she does every season, Campbell called in the big guns for the show. For designers that was Dolce & Gabbana, Givenchy, Balmain, Alexander McQueen, Versace and Burberry amongst others.
Georgia May Jagger and Jourdan Dunn were just two of the other models in addition to a gaggle of celebrities. It was indeed an event. Not counting the money raised last night the initiative has raised over $7.7 million in it’s existence and as a kick off to London Fashion Week it surely brought in a pretty penny this season.
