Naomi Campell’s Fashion For Relief

NaomiDSC_9450 copy

For ten years now Naomi Campell’s Fashion For Relief has raised funds and awareness for various social issues. This year’s focus was on ebola in Africa; Jeffrey Wright opened the show with a short speech reminding everyone that during the previous NYFW in September, Ebola was on everyone’s mind, but while it’s faded from the conciousness here, it is still very much taking a toll in Africa. So this is definitely fashion for a good cause, and the fashion, from a variety of designers, was terrific. Even more thrilling though was the amazing celebrity runway line-up: Kelly Osbourne, NeNe Leakes, Rosario Dawson, Paris Hilton, Tyson Beckford, former Elle creative director Joe Zee and of courage Ms. Campell herself walked, along with many others. The grand finale though was Mary J. Blige who moved down the runway with her signature beauty and grace. Speaking of beauty and grace, America’s NextTop Model contestant Winnie Harlow also walked. Harlow has the skin disorder vitiligo, which causes white patches all over her body, including her face. She’s become an inspiration for sure and she moved with confidence and ebullient energy to loud applause from the crowd, another high point in an already exciting show.
