Naomi Campbell - Naomi Campbell Plans Japan Fundraiser

Naomi Campbell hopes to help earthquake-hit Japan through fashion.

The 40-year-old supermodel is hoping to arrange an event with her Fashion for Relief charity - through which she previously staged a show to help disaster-stricken Haiti - next year and is in the early planning stages for the benefit, which she hopes will place in the South of France.

Speaking on TV show 'Lorraine', she said: "We are going to continue. It's not 100 per cent confirmed, but we are in talks right now. Hopefully we should know by the end of the week if we're doing Fashion for Relief: Japan.

"But not in Japan, we're hoping to try and do it in Cannes."

Naomi - who walked for Marc Jacobs' Louis Vuitton collection in Paris last month - has also revealed she has no plans to give up the catwalk as long as she is still offered work.

She said: "I still enjoy working and if friends ask me to do a show, I'd always do it for a friend, and Marc Jacobs is a friend."

Last night (05.04.11), Naomi opened a pop-up shop at London's Westfield shopping centre, which will sell dresses donated by celebrities and designers to raise money for the Prince's Trust through Fashion for Relief.

Speaking about the venture, she told the Evening Standard newspaper: "It's for charity - but this also keeps me in the industry I've been in for 26 years. Getting to know all the people I have over the years means I get to go and ask them to help and to get involved, and everyone wants to be."
