Behind the Scenes With Nigel Barker and Nine West Runway Relief

08/01/2011 at 06:00 PM ET

It’s almost that time of year again, when New York’s most stylish set hits the streets for New York Fashion Week. And while there will be surely be plenty of celebrities and couture around town, there will also be some serious fundraising happening in the name of fashion.

Nigel Barker recently shot a campaign with Nine West and a mob of famous models to help raise awareness for a Fashion Week initiative called Nine West Runway Relief, benefiting the CFDA’s Fashion Targets Breast Cancer. In the video above, filmed the day of the shoot, models including Chrissy Teigen and Carolyn Murphy show off a limited-edition Nine West boot equipped with a pedometer, which they’ll each wear while hoofing it around Manhattan during Fashion Week, running to and from dress fittings and post-event parties. For each mile walked by the models — Teigen, Murphy and about 40 other women — Nine West will donate one dollar to the cause.

Want to help? A version of the boot, plus a messenger bag and tank top, can be purchased at all Nine West stores, select Nordstrom locations.
