Naomi Campbell is getting ready to grant every single one of our fashion fantasies!

This past weekend at the British Vogue Festival in London, the supermodel revealed to the audience that she has plans to step into fashion design in the near future and hopes to have something out by 2015.

“I always had this feeling of, I love working with designers — I don’t want to be their competition, and maybe if I do my own line they won’t work with me any more…Now I’ve grown up a bit more, I will be [launching a line], yes … I will design not just for women of color, but for all. I see there’s lots of things that are not there that I feel that I’d like to have, and so I’d like to share it with everybody. So yes, I will, and hopefully one of the things will be out by 2015,” she said.

In addition to having a clothing line in the works, Ms. Campbell also revealed that she will be flaunting her birthday suit curves for a new photography book that she’s working on with Paolo Roversi.

“They’re nude pictures of me from 15 years ago. I said, Not coming out, not coming out! And then I finally decided they can come out. But they’re tasteful.”

The 43-year-old The Face creator also dished on diversity in fashion and how proud she is of the industry’s slow progression.

“When we started this whole thing about diversity, it wasn’t just about the fashion shows — it was that the designers would then follow through and use models of color in the campaigns, which is what we’ve all wanted to see. And you’ve got so many — I was so happy to see this [British Vogue issue]. You’ve got Prada [featuring Cindy Bruna and Malaika Firth], you’ve got Tom Ford Beauty [featuring Betty Adewole]. I mean I’ve never seen anything like this. This shows that there is a change for the positive and we’re going in the right direction.”

Add designer to Naomi’s name and a beautiful nude photo book spread, and we’re certain the fashion industry will see the beauty in brown skin.
