Naomi Campbell was spotted after the Fendi show at Paris Fashion Week yesterday after rocking the runway alongside her friend and fellow model, Christy Turlington.
Naomi Goes Print
She served an unorthodox outfit when stepping out of the show which definitely caught our attention. The ’90s supermodel wore a printed navy maxi dress with yellow and orange accents throughout and styled it with black trousers underneath.
She layered it with a sleek black leather jacket over the top. She accessorized the runway-ready outfit with layered necklaces and an $18,000 Hermes Kelly bag in a black colorway with gold hardware, finished off with a black face mask.
African Brand Or High end Print Skirt?
The stylist and designer behind the print skirt remain unknown and in these days and times, it could be a great artisan from Africa as Naomi has been pushing her support for African fashion.
Or alternatively, it could be a high-end brand as we also know they are captivated in the print culture also.
What we do know is the same print fabric was that she wore in a promotional video to call for funding for education as seen on her Instagram below. But this time, as a top.
Trainers With Maxi Dress?
When it came to shoes, Campbell completed the ensemble with a practical and surprisingly chic, streetwear-inspired shoe choice. The model chose a pair of what appears to be the iconic Air Jordan 1 Retro OG sneakers in the “Twist” colorway.
Since its first release in 1994, this was one of the original Air Jordan 1 Reto colorways and continues to be a buzzy collectors’ item. The monochrome high-top shoe releases again in 2008 as part of the Air Jordan Countdown Pack to celebrate the silhouette’s OG colorways.
According To Footwear News
Most recently, this black and white sneaker model was officially re-released in 2014 and still is currently available on the resale market. These coveted basketball shoes feature leather uppers with a black leather Nike Swoosh logo on sides and panel detailing throughout.
They retail for approximately $1,000, depending on the size, and can be purchased on reseller sites such as Goat.com.
Despite still being a supermodel, Naomi Campbell was also recently announced Kenya’s tourism ambassador. Read here.

Ghana’s leading fashion event Accra Fashion Week is scheduled for 7-11 December 2022 following their 5th-year celebration last year in 2021. Accra Fashion Week is a platform for African designers that can be compared to fashion weeks across the major capitals. It aims to fill the void which sees tremendous creativity and culture across the continent with the absence of an operating fashion infrastructure.
The epic event took place at Ghana Dubai in Accra, and saw models march down the steps from the Kwame Nkrumah Monument whilst being followed by a spotlight, before circulating the central fountains. Memories of the exciting night still give chills as guests revisit the experience on youtube.
However, rest assured that 2022 is going to be even more exciting with greater performances and an upgraded designer collection. FashionGHANA.com is sure to bring you the exclusives we did on www.FashionGHANA.com/TV. All last year’s shows are available to watch on youtube. Designer’s registration is ongoing on the AccraFashionWeek.org website.
