The V&A Is Hosting an Exhibition That Explores the Career of Naomi Campbell

NAOMI In Fashion at the V&A next summer is the first exhibition of its kind

Naomi Campbell has had an unrivalled career that’s spanned almost four decades and now the V&A is honouring that with an entire exhibition dedicated to the supermodel. The show, titled NAOMI In Fashion, has been produced in collaboration with Campbell and will focus on foregrounding her voice and perspective.

Visitors will get an unprecedented look at the wardrobe of one of the biggest names in fashion as Campbell has granted the V&A access to her extensive collection of haute couture and leading ready-to-wear ensembles. These will be displayed alongside loans from designer archives as well as objects from the V&A’s own collection. In total, there’ll be around 100 looks from the likes of Alexander McQueen, Azzedine Alaïa, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Gianni and Donatella Versace, Jean Paul Gaultier, John Galliano, Karl Lagerfeld, Kenneth Ize, Valentino, Virgil Abloh, Vivienne Westwood, Yves Saint Laurent and many others.

In addition to this, the exhibition will feature a fashion photography installation curated by Edward Enninful OBE, including the work of Nick Knight, Steven Meisel and Tim Walker. NAOMI In Fashion will also recognise Campbell’s mentors who inspired her to fight social injustice, champion diversity and support emerging creatives. Speaking about the upcoming show, Campbell said: “I’m honoured to be asked by the V&A to share my life in clothes with the world.”
