The British are serving up edgy looks for Spring-Summer 2020 as London Fashion Week kicked off last week. Supermodel Naomi, hosted and stole the show at her stylish charity runway event during London Fashion Week this past Saturday.
Campbell was wearing a vintage plunging black gown topping the glamorous look off with a mid-sixties style bouffant and diamonds designed by Thierry Mugler. Due to the presence of the most fashionable celebrities on the scene, Fashion for Relief was the greatest coveted ticket on London’s Fashion week calendar.
Fashion for Relief took place at the famed British Museum where the red carpet hugged the stairs and foyer as staging area for fashion elites enjoying light refreshments before the show. Celebrities in attendance included Alexa Chung, Pierce Brosnan, Billy Porter, Luke Evans, and Naomie Harris.
The evening started with a stunning runway show that contained over 50 models which involved Stella Maxwell, Adut Akech, Erin O’Connor, Alpha Dia, Iris Law, as well as Montell Martin. The show was supported by numerous global fashion houses, pieces from Alexander McQueen, Dior, Marc Jacobs, Givenchy, Gucci, as well as Vivienne Westwood.
Female models wore a diversity of styles such as tight fitted dresses, jumpsuits, dramatic pantsuits, with very light makeup. Russian styled and sheer outfits were worn by male models. The final scene, Campbell led 30 students from Elmsgreen School in Lambeth, who wore Fashion for Relief t-shirts walking the runway to close the show.
This was a reminder of the impact the foundation has had these past 14 years. Fashion for Relief is one of the few events that is supported and apart of British Fashion Council’s positive fashion initiative.
The event depicted a vast magnificent crowd, that lead to the private gala auction after the charity event. Naomi thanked the audience, also explained the affair benefitted the Mayor’s fund for London as well as UNICEF to support susceptible children who lack resources to primary education, followed by a rousing performance by Fashion Icon and Rapper Eve.
Fashion for Relief was founded in 2005 by Naomi, and has raised millions helping a number of humanitarians causes around the world.
