"Fashion For Relief." Supermodels will do the runway for good deed. Supermodel Naomi Campbell has announced plans for a charity fashion show in London to raise money for the victims of this year's UK floods.
To help launch the event, to be held in the British Fashion Council tent at the Natural History Museum on the evening of September 20th, Campbell has recruited some of her supermodel friends, including Yasmin Le Bon, Elle MacPherson, and Jodie Kidd among others.
In addition to them all there will be numbers of notable celebrities, like David Furnish and Rosario Dawson, teaming up to model collections of such fashion giants, as Burberry, Alexander McQueen, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Pepe Jeans, and Vivienne Westwood.
"I think this is an important opportunity to really show what the fashion community can do to help others. Fashion is universal, touches everyone in some way, every community, and the catwalk, my hometown catwalk to be precise, always a very special place for me, can be used to raise money and funds for the flood relief," Naomi said in a statement.
Naomi, moreover, has confirmed Kate Moss would be designing some of the clothes on the catwalk. "I kidnapped Kate. She's going to be a designer. I don't know what it will be that she designs. She doesn't really like to do the shows... it will be Kate Moss the designer."
Tickets for the event will be available to the public for purchase through Ticketmaster.co.uk or by calling 0870 243 4455 as of Wednesday, September 12th. All money raised will benefit the Rotary Flood Disaster Appeal.
