She shares this on her YouTube series “No Filter with Naomi”. Her series, where she carry out live interviews with fellow models.

Like other people working from home,

“I’m basically wearing track pants, T-shirts and leggings and that’s it, and when I do the show, whatever top I’m wearing, I’m wearing that too and underwear and a pair of slipper.”

Here is Naomi Campbell’s Interview with WSJ

Do people in the fashion industry have to figure out new ways to do things?

Sure we do. We’re embracing this. People are coming out with their formats and new ways of doing things. It’s just going to take a minute to get used to and to get going. I’m sure that many companies doing [innovative things] are now going to get their time. I think this is going to give the young generation and all these great young entrepreneurs their opportunity to show their skills.

Do you think runway shows will be the same?

No, I think fashion shows are going to change. I don’t know how exactly yet. But I think they will. I watched this guy from Central Saint Martins’s school of fashion in London, it was on the news in January, showing about the virtual fashion show with the clothes on a virtual model and it looked so real. I was, like, “Wow, is that what it’s going to come to?” And it could come faster than I thought! But people were already working on ideas, so those ideas now are just going to come faster to the forefront than, say, maybe two years away.

Some people see fashion as trivial and not a priority right now. What role can fashion play?

We always get: “We’re superficial.’’ We are not superficial. There’s a lot of things that fashion can do. We can do good things, too. We will come together once we’re out of quarantine. We will do our part.
