Naomi Campbell Brings Fashion for Relief Home to London to Support Disadvantaged Children
Naomi Campbell is hosting the gala for her global charity ‘Fashion for Relief’ in London on Saturday the 14th of September. Partnering with the Mayors Fund for London and UNICEF, the gala will raise crucial funds for young people in disadvantaged communities in and outside of the UK.
The Mayor’s Fund for London supports social mobility in London’s disadvantaged youth. The funds raised from the event will go towards the charity's employability programs, which provide support and education so that every young adult has the opportunity to a fulfilling career. Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has praised Campbell’s efforts and said that “this support will make a big difference in the charity’s work to help young Londoners.”
UNICEF’s educational programme offers support to some of the worlds most impoverished communities. The charity has revealed that every day, 61 Million children are unable to obtain basic primary education, and it is UNICEF’s aim to provide the most vulnerable children with the chance to learn and help end the cycle of poverty.
The Fashion for Relief event will take place at the British Museum in the middle of London’s Fashion Week proceedings. The event is sponsored by Chrome Hearts and Gucci and will feature a fashion show and musical performances throughout the night.
The British Fashion Council will be honouring Ms. Campbell with the Fashion Icon Award at The Fashion Awards 2019 in recognition of both her illustrious career and philanthropic work. She founded the charity in 2005 and has hosted yearly events that raise millions for humanitarian cases across the globe.
