Naomi Campbell’s YouTube series, entitled No Filter With Naomi, premiered on April 6 and to date has featured guests such as Cindy Crawford, Marc Jacobs, Ashley Graham, Adut Akech, Serena Williams, Karlie Kloss and more. Campbell’s show encourages fans to stay home and save lives during the coronavirus pandemic.
In the latest episode of No Filter With Naomi, the international supermodel, activist and philanthropist invited Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour to talk about the future of fashion and her life during the quarantine. Campbell began the interview by asking Wintour about Vogue and CFDA’s “A Common Thread” initiative. Wintour explained:
“It dawned on us that this [COVID-19] was going to be so much bigger than we thought of at first. After 9/11, the CFDA and Vogue started the initiative called the Fashion Fund which supported young designers. Tom Ford, myself, the CFDA and all of us at Vogue, we decided to take that fund which existed to support young designers and to repurpose it to help those that were struggling because of the pandemic within our community.”.
When they spoke about the changes brought about by the end of the pandemic, Wintour said: “it’s almost like we needed this terrible event to make us really understand it’s not about needing change, we have to change, we are going to change.”
