Supermodel extraordinaire Naomi Campbell kicked off New York Fashion Week with a star-studded show for her new collection with PrettyLittleThing. The fast-fashion UK retailer launched their collaboration with the timeless model on September 5, and they did it at Cipriani, a swanky event space in Lower Manhattan.

Campbell teamed up with emerging designers Victor Anate and Edvin Thompson to create a classic collection that is both affordable and timeless. She also wanted to highlight the talents of the newer designers on the fashion scene. In an interview with WWD, the mother of two explained why she went the fast fashion route.
“I know that it’s fast fashion and that people have their criticism. I’m not denying them. But as a changemaker, I felt this was a great way to effect change in the industry in getting my emerging designers recognized and seeing them on a global platform,” Campbell told the publication.
Who better to strut the runway than Campbell herself? The 38-year modeling veteran glided down the catwalk in a black and silver mesh dress that fit her like a glove.
The show even featured a set by American-born Nigerian singer, songwriter and record producer, Davido.
Perched front row were a bunch of our favorite celebrities. Model Halima Aden, Coco Jones, Teyana Taylor, Winnie Harlow, and Lala Anthony sat in the front row, looking like cool kids posted up in the high school cafeteria.
