Supermodel Naomi Campbell took part in a fashion show in Mumbai, India, on Saturday to pay tribute to victims of last November’s terror attacks in the city, and raise funds for the city’s emergency medical services.
Mai Mumbai saw Campbell join a host of Indian celebrities and models as they graced the catwalk in a range of Indian fashion. The evening was a charity memorial to the 166 people killed when Islamist gunmen went on a three-day rampage on some of the most famous landmarks in Mumbai, the financial and entertainment capital of India last year.
“I am a model with IMG [International Management Group] in America and Europe and they were telling me they wanted to do something for the bombings that happened at the Taj and the Oberoi and they asked me, what would you like to do, and I said I would like to contribute Fashion for Relief,” Campbell told Reuters. “I love India and I am so happy to be here. This was what was meant to be. I think God has a plan for everything and there was no better way to come here and do this show.”
