Naomi Campbell will return to Cannes next month with her Fashion For Relief charity gala and this year’s theme is Race To Equality (focusing on education, health and culture), she has announced today.
In support of Save the Children and Time’s Up, amongst other charities, the event will take place on May 13 in the picturesque Cannes Mandelieu Hangar. As in previous years, Campbell will enlist some of her famous friends to join her on the catwalk for the Fashion For Relief show, accompanied by a special live music performance, following a gala dinner and live auction, all of which raises vital funds for its chosen causes.
Set to be a star-studded affair on the Cannes calendar, last year’s attendees included Leonardo Di Caprio, Donatella Versace, Kate Moss, Uma Thurman, Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and Heidi Klum. Founded in 2005, Fashion For Relief has since raised millions, supporting charities supporting the fight against Ebola, disaster relief after the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, the Haiti earthquake, Hurricane Katrina, and child refugee crises.
