Naomi Campbell has signed with DNA Model Management as she looks to further her career as an influencer and philanthropist. The British supermodel, who has been a part of the fashion landscape for more than three decades, had enjoyed a long stint at New York Models but has now switched up her agency to expand her work in more areas.
"I want to share my 31 years of professional and personal knowledge with people around the world, and I hope to do this through many different initiatives, fashion included," Naomi said, reports WWD. "I also have commitments to further my work in philanthropy which has always been a priority of mine. At the core, my passion is to connect with people and I'm excited to explore new ways to do that."

The 47-year-old fashion star was scouted just before her 16th birthday while she was a student at the prestigious Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts. She went on to become one of the women who spearheaded the supermodel movement of the '90s, along with Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford, and Christy Turlington, among others.

"I have been modelling for 30 years and have a long-term approach to my career," Naomi continued. "DNA is known for this same style of management, and it's a critical time for me to align with the right people who understand all facets of the industry, so it feels like the perfect match. I really see this as a unity, almost like a marriage, with both teams committed to working toward the big picture."
Linda Evangelista, Natalia Vodianova, and Adwoa Aboah are among the names DNA also represents.
