Anna Wintour Talks About the Future of Fashion in Naomi Campbell's YouTube Series
“We really need to rethink what this industry stands for.”
Naomi Campbell‘s limited-time YouTube series dubbed, No Filter With Naomi, debuted on April 6 and has so far featured guests like Cindy Crawford, Marc Jacobs, Ashley Graham, Adut Akech, Serena Williams, Karlie Kloss and more. Campbell’s daily show encourages fans to stay home and save lives during the coronavirus pandemic, and focuses on in-depth, career-spanning conversations between her and her close friends.
For the latest episode of No Filter With Naomi, the international supermodel, activist and philanthropist invited Vogue‘s Editor-in-Chief, Anna Wintour, to discuss the future of fashion and life during quarantine. Campbell started off the livestream 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 discussing the changes after the pandemic dies down, Wintour shared: “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.” Watch the full interview in the video above.
