Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week for Fall 2010 ended last month but I realized that there was a missing piece from my Fashion Week files...

I was only present for three of the eight fun-filled fashion days and nights and am still clinging to the brief and magical moments while I was there... I'm also still pouting over all the shows that I missed.

There is one show in particular that I would have teleported myself to if I could have, Naomi Campbell's Fashion For Relief™ - Haiti.

Hosted by the other Fergie, (Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson) this runway show-slash-auction featured internationally recognized designers, celebrities and VIPs in order to raise crucial funds towards rebuilding Haiti’s healthcare system for mothers and children. The Bryant Park tent held 950 guests at prices ranging from $100 to $150 a ticket, which adds up to a nice amount of charitable fash cash.

Fashion For Relief™ began five years ago during MB Fashion Week in New York City, raising $1 million dollars for Hurricane Katrina relief. Proceeds raised this year will go directly to saving the lives of women, children and newborns across the recently earthquake stricken Haiti.

Supermodel Naomi Campbell brought together all of her famous friends in the fashion houses to put on a star-studded show with over 50 looks coming down the runway worn by celebrity models including Kelly Osborne, Estelle, Malin Ackerman and Alan Cummings, and designers such as Diane Von Furstenberg and Donna Karan who switched roles, walking the catwalk for the cause.

The looks were fun, bright and bold for the most part. I won't fail to mention that Supermodel Agyness Deyn wiped out twice on the runway until she finally took off her heels, walking barefoot like a pro. As I've said before, we all fall down.

The fashions were provided by a slew of esteemed designers including Carolina Herrera, Ralph Lauren, Dolce & Gabbana and Christian Dior, and will be auctioned online at Net-a-Porter starting today, March 15.

Wow, I'm surprised to hear any good press about Naomi - thank goodness it's for a great cause.
