Fashion & Style News: Naomi Campbell Collaborates with Marc Jacobs for Charity

October 16, 2009

Supermodel Naomi Campbell and Marc Jacobs are joining forces off the runway to generate charitable funds for the White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood. Since 1999, the White Ribbon Alliance has dedicated itself to spreading international public awareness of the need to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for all women and newborns. Campbell, whose ill-tempered antics often overshadow her goodwill deeds, currently serves as the Global Ambassador of the White Ribbon Alliance and does her best in making public efforts to spread awareness of this organization’s message.

Recently, Naomi Campbell made a special visit to the Louis Vuitton Paris showroom to choose a bag from its Spring/Summer 2010 Collection that will sell in retail stores to generate funds for the charity. The handbag selected by Campbell is a square-shaped bag made of soft, khaki, metallic leather with natural leather trim and is planned to retail for $2,789. In assisting Campbell with raising awareness of the surmounting occurrences of mortality during childbirth, Marc Jacobs has pledged to donate a portion of the sales to the White Ribbon Alliance.

Since being appointed the White Ribbon Alliance’s Global Ambassador in April of this year, Campbell has already begun making outstanding contributions to the organization. During this past summer, Naomi Campbell announced that she will be donating her pale, green alligator Hermes “Birkin” bag for a White Ribbon Alliance auction that will be held on November 10. However, keep in mind that Campbell is no stranger to raising funds for charity organizations. In 2005, Campbell created the Fashion for Relief charity foundation which is geared to providing aid for Hurricane Katrina victims. Every year, the top names in fashion, entertainment, music, and sports walk the catwalk in a charity fashion show to support this foundation.

Overall, Naomi Campbell’s collaboration with Marc Jacobs is sure to be a profitable fundraising effort for The White Ribbon Alliance. Consumers will be able to purchase this bag come March 2010 in Louis Vuitton retail stores across the world.

Also see Naomi Campbell is a Do-Gooder.

Fashion Week Paris: Louis Vuitton Spring 2010 Collection

October 10, 2009

Alas my favorite designer brand Louis Vuitton debuted their spring 2010 collection in Paris under the direction of Marc Jacobs. Denim, metallic, sporty, military, couture; Louis Vuitton has it all. Only one word could be used ot describe this collection–funky. And they even had the Afros to prove it.

Actress Zoe Saldana was seen in a black wool asymmetrical dress with a embroidered puff sleeve from the fall Louis Vuitton (but of course) line to their party Wednesday night. The luxury brand unveiled their new jewelry collection by Lorenz Baumer which included a 30.12 carat-flower cut diamond that would make Elizabeth Taylor blush. And this is why I love Louis Vuitton.
