Naomi Campbell: The Iconic Supermodel and idol to many. 

It is Sunday afternoon, I have just finished my sunday beast (a.k.a sunday dinner/roast dinner) and finished the UK TV series The Face: Season 1(I never heard of it until last week when i stumbled across it looking through on demand and i call my self a fashion student #disgraceful). Anyway Long story cut short Naomi Campbell was a mentor and she had the winning model who became the face of Maxfactor. Watching this made me realise how much i LOVE AND IDOLISE Naomi, the way she gracefully struts down the catwalk, the fierce ultimate boss b***h and the face that is globally recognised.

Naomi Campbell was born in May 1970, at the fragile age of 15 is when the world saw this Otherworldly goddess strike a pose. Campbell were and still is branded a SUPERMODEL. Fun fact in the 90’s Naomi was 1 of the 5 Supermodels that was around.

She was the first ever black woman to be featured on the French Vogue at the energetic age of 18. Not only that but the Campbell effect Dispersed into the atmosphere and her GORGEOUS face was everwhere(YASSS GAWD). Breaking records and also becoming the First Black Woman to be on the cover of TIME magazine, Russian Vogue and British Vogue.

Today the Queen has graced over 500 magazine covers expressing her longevity.

Not only has she got Magazine covers under her statement belt(lets say a Versace belt), But her beauty, Amazing straight talking personaility has erupted onto many Fashion campaigns such as Prada, Burberry , Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior and Chanel just to name a few.

The way she walks down the runway looking so vulnerable yet so very strong is absolutely divine. What i love in particular about her runway strut is at the front of the runway, the final stance, the stance that paints a thousand pictures, the stance that SCREAMS warrior queen ready to take on the world.

Personally for me, I would say Miss Campbell’s biggest career moment would be the fact that she worked with the Courageous soul Nelson Mandela and then he later named Naomi Hishonorary granddaughter for her endless activisim work.

Charitable work;

  • Established Fashion for Relief 
  • We love Brazil
  • Live Earth
  • AIDS LIFE

Just to name a few.

Why I find her so inspirational:

I didn’t really know much about fashion before i started my degree but i always knew who Naomi was(who wouldn’t). But recently I have become so transfixed with feminism and equality and Naomi’s name and face was all over in my research. I love the way she carries herself not just in fashion but in general life, she just has this goddess like essence about her, but in popular culture whatever she does, Naomi pefectly showcases her BEAUTIFUL aura, vulnerabilty, attitude and proud woman characteristics.  Everything about Naomi is perfect and i Love Love Love her diva attitude especially when she stands for something she believes in(snaps fingers).

I hope one day when i become successful in the Fashion Industry that i can proudly say i was in the same room as Naomi Campbell, thats when i will know i’ve made it.

My Vision:

I never thought in a million years that i would be doing a degree yet alone a Fashion degree, but while doing this degree it truly has made me true to myself, appreicate visual arts and helped me understand and appreciate all walks of life. I actully love uni especially the tutors(i have 4 talented individuals, pouring knowledge into my brain). I’ll not name them because i haven’t asked them if it would be okay so i’ll give them numbers for reference. First there is tutor #1, Shes great, imaginative, Sassy and a pusher(all for my own good though, appreciate it girl no shade) 

Tutor #1

Moving onto Tutor #2, oh my she is the pattern cutting queen,got me into reading informative and useful books and a fellow animal lover.

Legit something tutor #2 would say

Tutor #3, he is the essay writing, havard referencing king. 


Finally last but not least, drum roll please, Tutor #4, she is the most supportive, understands my vision, career goals(she worked in the fashion industry in USA) and the computer aided design queen.

What i want to achieve;

I want a lot of things in life(usually chinese food) but education and career wise is what we need to focus on. My education I would like to graduate with a First class honors but i will settle with 2:1 or 2:2(perseverance and determination is key), just to graduate will make me extremely ecstatic. 

Career wise i would love to set up my own clothing brand starting off with womenswear, also i would love to be a stylist and be a Fashion Editor. Right now i am participating in an internship programme at Accent Clothing in Leeds, West Yorkshire. Eventually i will go back to uni and do a masters degree, International Fashion Journalism and have my own magazine. #workhard #playharder
