Fashion fundraiser to fight Ebola


Naomi Campbell’s pledge to raise funds and awareness for the fight against Ebola has not fallen flat.

The supermodel will open next month’s London Fashion Week with a huge catwalk extravaganza, which will no doubt see more than a few famous faces. Past shows arranged by Campbell have seen the likes of Kate Moss and Beyonce take to the catwalk.

The show is being put on as part of Campbell’s Fashion For Relief organisation, which was founded by the British model in 2005 as a way of generating funds for disaster relief through fashion shows and auctions.

The first show raised money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina, and she has since used the project to raise funds following the India terrorist attacks in 2009, the Haiti earthquake in 2010 and the 2011 Japan earthquake and tsunami.

Leading designers have donated pieces to be worn for the show, while Campbell has called upon the most influential designers and artists to donate items to the Fashion For Relief Auction.
