Naomi Campbell is supermodel by day, and activist by night. She’s now using her household name to increase the number of women of color on the runway, according to The New Age. Known as part of the original “trinity”, (Christy Turlington & Linda Evangelista) the well-seasoned supermodel has made monumental changes in the fashion industry. She was the first black model to cover Time magazine, French Vogue and Russia Vogue.
Campbell was inspired by the late renown activist and leader against apartheid, Nelson Mandela. She had a close relationship with him, being dubbed his “honorary granddaughter”, according to The New Age. The campaign is spearheaded by former model Bethann Hardison, who is also close to Naomi. Both women are fighting to widen the gap for minority models.
