Naomi Campbell knows better than anyone that if you get famous for one thing, you’re allowed to do other things you might not be especially good at. Thanks to the supermodel and the Fashion for Relief charity fashion show she started in 2005 after being inspired by the late Nelson Mandela, Afropop’s ‘baddest girl’, Tiwa Savage made her runway debut on Saturday.
Hosted every year, Fashion for Relief supports many humanitarian causes around the world such as the ebola outbreak in Africa. The event is always well attended by the supermodel’s star-studded guest list who have been known to grace the catwalk. This year’s show featured stunning pieces, with vibrant colours and an array of feathers, fringe and tulle.
Tiwa Savage strutted down the runway, looking beautiful as ever, in a black and white tubed asymmetric dress topped up with a black shawl. The singer/songwriter spoke to Vogue about her experience on the runway, ‘It’s definitely a different experience from singing. It was very quick, and it’s not as easy as it looks… I just found out.‘ We are excited to see her make more appearances in the fashion scene.
