Naomi to Design–At Sunday’s British Vogue Festival held in London, supermodel Naomi Campbell revealed that she is working on a clothing line. Naomi announced the news after being asked by a fan if one was in the works. The Cut shares some quotes from the British model about the decision. “I always had this feeling of, ‘I love working with designers — I don’t want to be their competition, and maybe if I do my own line they won’t work with me any more’,” she shared. “Now I’ve grown up a bit more, I will be [launching a line], yes … I will design not just for women of color, but for all. I see there’s lots of things that are not there that I feel that I’d like to have, and so I’d like to share it with everybody. So yes, I will, and hopefully one of the things will be out by 2015.”
Naomi, who recently gave a great reaction about the recent Kimye Vogue cover, also revealed she is working on a book of nude images with renowned photographer Paolo Roversi. “I thought they were never going to be seen,” she revealed. “They’re nude pictures of me from 15 years ago. I said, Not coming out, not coming out! And then I finally decided they can come out. But they’re tasteful.” We’ll definitely be on the look out for the book and clothing line.
Earlier today, supermodel Naomi Campbell was a guest on Australia’s “The Morning Show” and she was asked about the cover saw around the world– Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Vogue cover. “I do not want to comment,” she told the hosts Larry Emdur and Kylie Gillies when asked about her opinion. She then broke into a series of laughs. “I’m a fashion model and I’ve been working for 28 years,” Campbell stated. “And when you get a Vogue cover, it’s a build in your career…a stepping stone to achieve that.”

On battling discrimination in her early years:
She’s battled discrimination in the industry, saying that the color of her skin has been a challenge her entire career. “But I learned if you don’t accept no for an answer, you often get a yes.” She also says, “Every cover I got, I fought for. No’s don’t deter me—they make me more determined.”

“You know, I have Jamaican-Chinese heritage. I love my food. And no, I’ve never- you know I came [in the industry] with group of ladies. Linda, Cindy, Christy, Tatjana, Stephanie, and that just was not [it]. We were friends, we loved each other and we loved to go eat with each other. That was not a part of that era.”
