Naomi Campbell’s Most Iconic Looks To Be Featured in UK Exhibit

The exhibit runs from June 2024 to April 2025.

Naomi Campbell’s outstanding legacy is being celebrated.

Earlier this week, news spread that highlights from the revered supermodel’s career and some of her most buzzed-about garments will be featured in a U.K. museum, as reported by The Cut. The V&A exhibit, fittingly dubbed “NAOMI’ will be a tribute to her nearly 40-year career in the fashion industry.

Some of the pieces that will be included are ones that she has worn and feature the pink feathered cape by Valentino she donned at the MET Gala in 2019, along with the famous Versace dress she rocked on the runway that was accentuated with a trendy print of Marilyn Monroe. Her prized 1989 Mugler corset that she wore during a recent exhibit from the brand also made the cut.

Additionally, the exhibit will display a fashion photography installation curated by British Vogue’s outgoing editor, Edward Enninful.

Along with Campbell’s history of fashion, this exhibit will center on her philanthropic work and will pay homage to her mentors in the industry, Iman and Bethann Hardison.

Last month, during New York Fashion Week, Campbell walked in her debut collection with PrettyLittleThing. Campbell collaborated with emerging Black designers –Victor Anate and Edvin Thompson– and said this was an opportunity for her to advocate for those deserving of a seat at the table.

“I’m looking at myself as a changemaker,” she told WWD. As a changemaker, I thought this was something that was a good thing to do. I know that it’s fast fashion, and that people have their criticism. I’m not denying them. But as a changemaker, I felt this was a great way to effect change in the industry in getting my emerging designers recognized and seeing them on a global platform,” she added.

The NAOMI exhibition will run from June 2024 to April 2025.
