Naomi Campbell presented a tribute to Azzedine Alaïa during the Fashion Awards 2017, in London’s Royal Albert Hall. Campbell has previously described Alaïa as a father figure, as she proudly honoured the Tunisian couturier designer’s work, alongside Linda Spierings, Farida Khelfa, Veronica Webb, Stephanie Seymour, Yasmin Le Bon Imaan Hammam and more.
Naomi Campbell wore a dress from Azzedine Alaïa’s Fall 2017 Couture collection at the Fashion Awards and started the hashtag #tributetopapa, as the world-leading designer was remembered by the fashion industry and his many supportive followers. Alaïa, who passed away last month, received a posthumous award which celebrated his achievements in the fashion industry, in particular his ground-breaking efforts in haute couture.
