We are the people we are today, because of those who helped us. Naomi Campbell reflects on the fashion mountains she climbed as a trailblazing supermodel of color, in Interview Magazine.
Cover Awards, brings us her words of gratitude when reflecting.
“Back when she, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangalista, Kate Moss and Stephanie Seymour ruled every magazine cover and catwalk” the golden era of the supermodel 90′s was where Naomi made her name as a young beauty.
“As Campbell says: “We were very supportive of one another, my group of girls, and I don’t think that happens so much nowadays.”
“Honestly, for me it was a blessing to have a friend like Christy. I was so indebted to her for so many things. You know, when I was younger there were certain designers who hadn’t used models of color in their shows, and Christy and Linda said to them, “If you don’t take Naomi, then you don’t get us.” My friends and comrades stuck up for me–and that doesn’t happen in fashion. I will never forget that. I don’t forget what people do. No matter how many years go by, I always remember.”
May we always stick up for others too – who need a friend – and strengthen our friends too, by challenging each other, to do more. Gratitude from Campbell is a good message today. Thanks Cover Awards for the reminder.
