British Vogue hosted its brilliant Vogue Festival this weekend, an occasion that brought out the stars of fashion and brought together two of our favourite islandistas – supermodel Naomi Campbell and future super Jourdan Dunn.
Both ladies were featured on panels at the festival, with Jourdan joining bestie Karlie Kloss, Rosie Huntington-Whitely and Edie Campbell for a panel on ‘What’s it really like to be a model?’.
Meanwhile, Naomi closed the show so to speak, appearing for the final talk on the last day with British Vogue and Italian Vogue editors in chief, Alexandra Shulman and Franca Sozanni for a wide-ranging talk on fashion, fame and how to use it for philanthropy.
She spoke about her forthright campaigning for more diversity in the fashion industry, noting:
” We didn’t start this to blame or complain, just build awareness. Keeping it fresh in people’s minds. It’s not a trend.”
She also revealed that a fashion line is in the works, noting that it was something she had hesitated to do in the past, for fear of angering the designers for whom she modelled.
“I used to think that if I started my own line then designers wouldn’t want me to work for them any more, but now I feel different, and I will be doing that. Hopefully the first item will be out in 2015,” she stated.
Jourdan posted pix of herself with her model mentor with the affectionate caption “guardian angel”.
We’re kind of loving it!
