Naomi Campbell is returning to the catwalk, but this time the supermodel is hosting a show rather than strutting down the runway. For London Fashion Week, Campbell will partner up with Fashion for Relief to bring awareness to the Ebola crisis.
“I’m thrilled to return to London to open London Fashion Week for this very special cause close to my heart,” Campbell told Grazia Daily UK. “The Fashion for Relief Show is an incredible event and this year we hope to raise more money than ever before. Raising awareness for Ebola and educating about its prevention is crucial to help prevent the spread of this deadly disease.”
Campbell was able to get some top designers, including Alexander McQueen, Givenchy, Balmain and Stella McCartney, to donate pieces that will then be auctioned off to raise funds for the initiative. Luckily, it’s not an event roped off solely for the A-listers. Anybody who wants to attend the London show can buy tickets on Ticketmaster for about $80.
