Last year, I had the opportunity to work in a charity fashion show in New York. All of the proceeds were going to different homeless shelters in the city. The models and designers who participated had donated their time and talent for the cause. I worked in marketing and advertisement. It was truly a night that we all will remember.
When my company was approached to do the marketing, I did a little research about the charity. I found out that it was founded and is lead by supermodel Naomi Campbell. I got to watch her work with all of the participants and was impressed. Not only is Campbell beautiful, but she has a giving heart and is dedicated to her charity work.
Naomi Campbell is from London and is one of the top supermodels in the world. She was discovered when she was just 15 years old. Campbell’s face has been on hundreds of magazines over the years, and she has been instrumental in various product campaigns. She has modeled for some of the most famous international designers, such as Versace and Chanel. Campbell has broken racial barriers and holds records for being the first British black model on several well-known magazines. During her career, Naomi Campbell has also been a guest star on several television shows, films, and videos.
In 2012, Campbell launched a show called “The Face”. She mentors young models and brings in several professionals to give the contestants a chance for real modeling experience. Although it is a show on US television, it has already been broadcast in Australia. There are plans to bring “The Face” to venues over the world. Campbell is the executive producer for the show.
She started charity work with Nelson Mandela in 1993 and has never ceased in her activism in South Africa. In the United States, Campbell established a charity fashion show in 2005. It is called Fashion for Relief. This charity has raised millions of dollars for different causes across the globe. Naomi Campbell is still a shining star in the fashion world. She continues her entrepreneurial projects as well as her many charity works.
