Supermodel, Naomi Campbell held her annual ‘Fashion for relief’ event at the British Museum on September 14, 2019, in London, England.
Fashion for Relief is a charitable organization founded in 2005 that has raised funds for various environmental and humanitarian causes. It holds events in association with the London-based non-profit organization CARE.
This year’s event which was held during the ongoing London Fashion Week featured Nigerian singer Tiwa Savage as one of the models as she walked the runway for a good cause. Tiwa Savage is a popular Nigeria musician and a philanthropist who was married to her former manager, ‘Teebilz’.
Fashion For Relief is a charity set up by Naomi Campbell in 2005, after she was inspired by her mentor and friend, Nelson Mandela, who told her she should use her voice for good. She decided to set up a charitable organisation which united the fashion industry to support humanitarian causes “dedicated to improving the lives of those living in adversity”.
Anyone can make a donation through its website, but Fashion For Relief holds regular fashion shows which attract the industry’s biggest names which Tiwa Savage is one as she also just released her latest album ‘4999’ which has been accepted worldwide.
Campbell fully utilises her star address book to enlist famous models and actresses to either walk in the show or attend as a guest but it was surprising to see Tiwa Savage walk in the show as no one thought she could model.
Nigerians hope to see more of Tiwa Savage on the runaway as she has a promising career modelling.
