Naomi Campbell Celebrates 33 Years in Fashion
The popular British model Naomi Campbell has certainly reached a milestone in her career. Now that she is finally celebrating 33 years of being in the fashion industry, Campbell has more reasons to be proud of. After all, she lasted almost three decades and is still going good while people predicted she would not do more than 11 years.
What’s even more interesting is that Campbell has the support of celebrities. Although her work truly speaks of her success, the appreciation she receives from celebrities is further proof of how great she is. Kim Kardashian West commented underneath her post terming her as the best one. Well, that’s a much popular opinion in the fashion industry.
Naomi Campbell Marks 33 Successful Years in the Fashion Industry…
Naomi Campbell took to Instagram to announce how she had completed 33 years in the industry. But there’s more to celebrate for her and add to her pride. Despite a lot many people saying she wouldn’t last more than 11 years, yesterday marked more than three decades of her presence in the industry. In fact, Campbell herself is quite shocked. She had never imagined that there would come a day when she would be able to post something like this on social media. But she chose to remain humble, thanking God for all his blessings, and expressing her gratitude.
Campbell attributed her success to her mother thanking her for believing in her ever since she was just a three year old. The supermodel claims that if her mother had not let her be who she wanted, she would not have become who she is today. In fact, its just the love and support of her mother which kept her going through all the good and bad times.
Naomi Campbell also expressed her gratitude towards her friends and family. Although she did not particularly name anybody, she said they knew who they were. But they had stood with her in good and bad times throughout this incredible journey in fashion. The model claimed that she is always on flights and engaged in work. But these are the people who tell her to catch a break and slow down. However, Campbell has a mission that she has embarked upon. She is here to do more than just make a mark. Instead, she wants to bring diversity and equality into the fashion industry. But that’s not it- Naomi also wants to change the narrative and perception of Africa.
Looks like Campbell has aimed more than just becoming a top model in fashion. She is working to change its dimensions all over the world, and benefit the industry at large.

They said I would only last 11 years, but here I am today celebrating 33 years in the business of fashion! I feel so blessed and grateful to God. I never thought that there would be a day when I would even convey such a message on social media! To my beautiful mother Valerie Morris @valeriemorriscampbell I thank you for believing in the dreams of a 3 year old and letting me be me. Your love and support has kept me going through good and bad times. I love you mum. To my family and friends that have been with me on this incredible journey throughout these years, stuck by me through thick and thin , you know who you are and I thank you. I go from plane to plane from city to city almost daily and I’m constantly working. My friends are always telling me to slow down and rest but I’m at a point in my career where my vision is crystal clear, and for now I’m on a mission. A mission to nurture the new and next generation. A mission to ensure that my industry – the fashion industry – is a place that's diverse and of equal opportunity and I’m on a mission to change the narrative and perception of the great continent of Africa! I do believe that I will rest when God wants me to, but until then I’ll keep going! Love you all Loads Naomi 😘😘♥️🙏🏾 📸 Steven Meisel
