Supermodel and fashion icon Naomi Campbell has announced September 17 as the date for her Fashion for Relief charity fashion show.
The show will take place as part of London Fashion Week, and will raise money for the White Ribbon Alliance – a charity set up to raise awareness for maternal mortality.
“I am honored to be working with the White Ribbon Alliance on this year’s Fashion For Relief,” said Campbell. “So many woman, children, families, communities around the world are affected by maternal mortality. Fashion is universal, personal and touches everyone in some way. We are using this year’s London Fashion Week catwalk to reach people, showcase the important work of the White Ribbon Alliance and raise money for this cause.”
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 London Fashion Week.
Fashion for Relief is also running an auction to celebrate the event. It will feature haute couture straight from the catwalk after the show, as well as selections from Autumn/Winter collections. It will go live on September 20 through www.fashionexchange.co.uk.
