Super Models Join Forces to Promote Fashion Targets Breast Cancer Campaign for 2016

This year Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss – considered fashion icons in their own rights – are joining forces once again to promote the 2016 campaign. Celebrity models are often seen promoting charitable causes and this year looks to be no exception. This auspicious anniversary illustrates a new declaration of the power of fashion, charity and womanhood, pioneered by two of the best-known faces on global modeling scene. The campaign, that has so far raised over £14 million for breast cancer research, has seen support from other models of the supermodel era including Claudia Schiffer, Elle Macpherson and celebrity super snapper Mario Testino.

Wearing an Indian-inspired maxi dress by Manchester-based, self-proclaimed fast fashion label Glamorous, she looked cool and relaxed despite the heat. The dress was actually on sale earlier this year, but has now gone back online following the renewed interest from the royal outing. Katherine Peacock, CEO of Model Agency (http://www.modelagency.uk.com/) based in Wandsworth, London is more than aware of just how much influence the Duchess of Cambridge has on our taste in fashion as a nation. “As a model agency who operates on a global scale, but is based in London, we know just how much the UK and the rest of the world adores her” she says. “If she wears something mainstream, you can guarantee it sells out, sharpish” Peacock continues by adding “Part of[…]
