Supermodel Naomi Campbell has announced that she will open London Fashion Week (LFW), with her charitable initiative – the Fashion For Relief runway show – set to be staged the eve before LFW kickstarts

Following her recent appearance closing La Perla's Atelier Couture debut at Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week, Naomi Campbell has announced that she will kickstart London Fashion Week (LFW).

The iconic 44-year-old supermodel will host her Fashion For Relief show the evening before LFW takes place – a charitable project in which she aims to raise awareness around the war against Ebola.

At the end of last year Campbell launched a pop-up shop at Westfield London in aid of the project, and is now planning to stage her second London showcase to bring awareness and much-needed funds to the important cause.

Campbell's influential fashion circle – including fellow supermodel Kate Moss, designer Diane Von Furstenberg, Margherita Missoni and Daphne Guinness – are expected to support the philanthropist, when she stages a fashion show in February in the British capital featuring pieces from the likes of Givenchy, Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain, Alexander McQueen, Azzedine Alaia, Vivienne Westwood, Stella McCartney, Marchesa and Versace.

The special event will take place at BFC HQ Somerset House ahead of LFW, and will feature a charitable auction with proceeds going to the Disaster Emergency Committee: Ebola Crisis Appeal. Tickets will be priced at 50 GBP and will go on sale via ticketmaster.com.
