Naomi Campbell and Diesel collaborate on a collection to benefit refugee children

Apr 20, 2017

Legendary supermodel Naomi Campbell is using her fashion cred to support the world’s refugee children. The fashion icon has teamed up with denim brand Diesel to create a collection whose proceeds will go to her charity Fashion for Relief, which benefits children around the world.

Naomi Campbell for Diesel X Fashion for Relief - Child at Heart - Diesel

Titled Child at Heart, the collection includes T-shirts and hoodies with rainbow heart and ladybird designs, both of which were drawn by children from Diesel HQ kindergarten in Italy. The pieces will be sold both online and at select Diesel stores and portions of the proceeds will go to Fashion for Relief. 
Campbell has raised over $5 million through Fashion for Relief since launching the project in 2005. Her charity work has led her to be recognized by the American Foundation for AIDS research. Of the new Fashion For Relief x Diesel collection, she says, “This amazing and special project will provide much-needed aid and support for refugee children.”

As part of an effort to promote unity, Diesel also recently launched its “Make Love Not Walls” campaign, which was shot by David LaChapelle.
The campaign for the Child at Heart collection was shot by photographer Giampaolo Sgura and features Campbell modeling the pieces alongside Diesel artistic director Nicola Formichetti. A large lineup of models such as Barbara Palvin, Matt McMahon, Molly Blair and Wang Chen Ming all lent their faces to the campaign for free in support of the initiative.
