Naomi Campbell Set to be Honored During New York Fashion Week

According to Source Magazine, Essence will honor the fashion model icon, Naomi Campbell during New York Fashion Week. She’ll be celebrated at the annual Street Style Festival that is set to take place at the Duggal Greenhouse in Brooklyn on September 9. Amanda Seales will be hosting this event, while Teyana Taylor and Yemi Alade will be slated to perform.


Campbell spoke about her desire to help young, rising designers to having a place to show their work. “I want to do a platform because not everyone can go to these big fashion weeks around the world and put money into showing their product,” she said as a panelist for Cannes Lions.

Others to be honored at Street Style Festival include singer Kelis and fashion influencer Kellie Brown.
