FENDI Peekaboo SS23 ADV Campaign ft. NAOMI CAMPBELL and Naomi Campbell 1987 in Diane Pernet

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I could not resist posting this image of when I met Naomi at age 15 alongside the new FENDI Peekaboo SS23 Ad campaign. At age 15 Naomi  was already a strong force and after the photo shoot for Taxi she asked the stylist to introduce her to the designer of the dress pictured above. When she walked into my small New York City atelier my eyes lit up. She of course is every designer’s dream, who would not want to dress her? The rest is history.

Creative Direction: Ronnie Cooke Newhouse, Karl Bolander
