Naomi established Fashion For Relief in accossiation with The British Rotary Club, to help those effected by this summer's flooding across Britain. She says she felt compelled to help raise funds when she saw that British children were unable to go back to school this September, and she took her inspiration from her famous friends in New York who rallied round in 2005 to raise funds for those effected by Hurracaine Katrina. Ticket prices for last night's show ranged from £100 for a space to stand at the back of the BFC Tent (London Fashion Week's official venue) to £750 for a front row seat.
