Campbell, Designers Team up for Fashion for Relief
September 23, 2005

Naomi Campbell, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Beyoncé and a catwalk full of fashion A-listers came together last week to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina through a special fashion show called Fashion for Relief.

"Personally, my first modeling job at 15 was for British magazine, British Elle in fact," Campbell recalled. "It was on location in New Orleans. I think everybody has been affected by this. Something that is nature's force, you've got to help."

Fashion for Relief, which Campbell created, includes an online charity auction, in which you can bid on your favorite designer clothes, all for a good cause.

"Every single thing that we wore you can go on today and bid," Campbell said. "Every outfit, Mark Jacobs, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Oscar de la Renta, Michael Kors, every designer you can think of. Then we've got the official shirt, thank you Mr. Ralph Lauren. It's going to be in every Polo shop worldwide. And all the funds from this go to Fashion for Relief."

The charity-fashion show was the final event of New York City's Fashion Week and the night even included a surprise performance by Beyoncé.

The auction runs until September 29th. All you have to do is log onto www.fashionforrelief.yahoo.com.
