KATE MOSS & NAOMI CAMPBELL return 20 years later to help support FASHION TARGETS BREAST CANCER
BY KENNETH RICHARD
Original Nineties supermodels Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell have returned for a beautiful throwback to support Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, in the UK. The images, captured by photographer Mario Testino, who lent his services to the cause, will be splashing billboards across the UK this month and touch upon the models’ looks from the campaign 20 years ago.
Fashion Targets Breast Cancer is the cause, founded by designer Ralph Lauren, who lost a dear friend to the disease. Throughout the six-week campaign, the charity raises funds, donating at least 30 percent of each item to the UK’s largest breast cancer charity, Breast Cancer Now. The organization’s goal is that by 2050 no woman will die from breast cancer.
It’s great to be returning to support Fashion Targets Breast Cancer on this very special anniversary year. Since its UK launch in 1996, when I first appeared in the campaign poster, Fashion Targets Breast Cancer has gone on to impact so many lives by funding vital research into this devastating disease.
The campaign has included a bevy of supermodels and celebrities over the years including Twiggy, Jerry Hall, Claudia Schiffer, Sienna Miller, Elle Macpherson, Kylie Minogue, Georgia May Jagger, Lily Donaldson, Yasmin le Bon, and numerous others.
Campbell added, “For the last 20 years Fashion Targets Breast Cancer has united us all – scientists, models, designers, mothers, photographers, retailers – as a powerful force against the disease. That’s two decades of incredible support for cutting edge breast cancer research and it’s vital that we don’t stop now. With 2016’s campaign, I’m honoured to stand with people across the UK united in our belief that, together, we will win this fight.”
That fighting spirit can be supported here at UK’s Fashion Targets Breast Cancer.
