British model Naomi Campbell is launching a star-studded catwalk show to raise money for Britain’s flood victims. She has joined forces with model friends Yasmin Le Bon, Jodie Kidd and Elle Macpherson and the Rotary Club of Great Britain to launch the “Fashion for Relief” event. British designers Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen have also been invited to take part. Naomi stated, “As a British model, in my home town in London, I am honoured to be able to put on and be involved in this kind of show".

The show is due to take place at London’s Natural History Museum at the end of London Fashion Week on 20th September. What a great idea and a wonderful initiative by somebody in the public eye. So many British families have suffered so much with the heavy rain and floods this year with many losing their homes and possessions and some poor people losing their lives. The cost of the devastation is estimated at three billion pounds. This is a wonderful gesture.
