No arrests have been made for the fire which killed 72 in 2017.
Adwoa Aboah, musician Emeli Sandé and a number of other activists took to the catwalk this week to show support for everyone who has been affected by the Grenfell Tower disaster.
Kickstarting London Fashion Week, the supermodel joined singer Emeli Sandé and DJ Becky Tong to support for the Justice4Grenfell campaign, donning T-shirts emblazoned with the message “72 dead and still no arrests? How come?” at 180 The Strand.
Aboah, who was born and raised in west London, said she “didn’t have to think twice” about taking part.
“I hope the public sees the faces, the stories, and knows that it’s still very much part of the survivors’ everyday lives. People lost their lives, loved ones and homes.”
The fire, which destroyed the tower in June 2017 is one of the UK’s worst modern disasters, killing 71 people.
Survivors and loved ones of the victims have not yet been compensated for the disaster, and no arrests have been made.
The T-shirts were inspired by Martin McDonagh’s 2018 Oscar-winning film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and echoed messages posted around London last year.
The #NoDeathInVain T-Shirt was designed by @grenfellspeaks & SplitSquare Design. to ”create a design that remembered and honoured the people who died at Grenfell Tower, & to serve as a reminder of why we continue to campaign as a community” #justiceforGrenfell #unitedforGrenfell— remy mohamed (@remyacb) February 15, 2019
Faisal Metalsi, who runs Grenfell Speaks, said: “We created the T-shirts as a way to remember the 72 who died and bring it back to why, as a community, we do what we do in terms of campaigning and social justice. It’s amazing to have backing from such famous people.”
