Naomi Campbell will hold a Fashion For Relief event at the New York Fashion Week on February 12 to benefit Haiti earthquake relief.
Hosted by Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, the star-studded event will feature actors, musicians and celebrities walking the runway in various looks created by some of fashion’s top designers and to be later auctioned online at NET-A-PORTER from March 15, with proceeds going to CARE.
“I am deeply saddened by the recent tragedy in Haiti; so many have been killed and severely affected by the earthquake – women and children in particular are most vulnerable in disasters,” said Campbell. “Fashion is universal, personal and touches everyone. Our aim is to use this year’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week catwalk to reach people and help raise crucial funds to help save the lives of women and children.”
Fashion for Relief was first held in 2005, and raised money for victims of Hurricane Katrina. It has since become a regular and eagerly anticipated fixture of Fashion Weeks around the world.
“Fashion for Relief only works if everyone comes together and makes it work,” Campbell said.
Tickets are on sale from Ticketmaster.
