London (ANI): After the success of her charity fashion show in New York, supermodel Naomi Campbell is planning on staging a follow-up at the London Fashion Week.
Campbell, 39, had organised the Fashion for Relief Haiti show on February 12 as part of the New York Fashion Week to raise money in aid of the earthquake-hit Caribbean nation. The show had many big names involved, and now the model is planning a second gala to raise funds for mothers and new babies in Haiti.
“I am deeply saddened by the recent tragedy in Haiti. So many have been killed and severely affected by the earthquake - women and children in particular are most vulnerable in disasters," the Daily Star quoted her as saying. “Fashion is universal, personal and touches everyone," she said.
The model is also teaming up with bosses of luxury carmaker Lotus, who have designed eight special edition vehicles named Naomi for Haiti. One of the cars will be auctioned off during the show, with the other seven being sold online at www.naomiforhaiti.com from February 19.
“I am delighted that Lotus Cars is supporting my Fashion for Relief charity and I am sure with such generous help we will raise crucial funds to help save the lives of women and children," Campbell added.
