Fashion for Japan


Fashion for Japan is the latest fund raiser organized to help Japan. Supermodel Naomi Campbell is at the Cannes Film Festival to stage a Fashion for Relief show in aid of the earthquake and tsunami victims in Japan.

Campbell has enlisted her A-list friends for the show, which will be held tonight at the historic Forkville market in Cannes. Designers have donated red carpet dresses for the show, while Dolce & Gabbana have made charity T-shirts. The event will be followed by an auction, which includes artworks by Tracey Emin and Dennis Hopper, and a customised Lotus Évora. It is being staged in collaboration with Vogue Italia and all funds raised will go to the Japanese Red Cross.

The supermodel said she was horrified by the images of the disaster and immediately resolved to help Japan. She said "The destruction caused by the earthquake is completely heartbreaking, it's so hard to even begin to comprehend the tragic loss the people of Japan are coping with. I felt very passionate to try and help in whatever way possible, to do our part and to support Japan at this time. I hope that the money raised from Fashion For Relief in Cannes will support those who need it most."
