She said: "The models represent a diversity of ages, backgrounds and locations with a view to showing how breast cancer can affect anyone.
"I am sure it will be an amazing and very emotional experience and also a personal celebration for me, as this year I have passed the five year post-diagnosis milestone."
The models will show off designer clothing from fashion's elite including Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney and Vivienne Westwood, as well as high street outfits.
They will be styled by fashion correspondent Hilary Alexander alongside London Fashion Week coordinator, Lesley Goring.
Their hair will be transformed by Sassoon Salons and make up applied by Estée Lauder.
Fiona was diagnosed in May 2007 and decided to take part in the show in order to encourage others that there is life after breast cancer.
She said: "Taking part in Breast Cancer Care's Fashion Show is going to be exciting and outside my comfort zone, something I would never have contemplated or had the confidence to do before."
Breast Cancer Care chief executive, Samia al Qadhi said: "The show is a splendid opportunity for all the models taking part to demonstrate, in front of their friends and families, that you can celebrate life after a breast cancer diagnosis.
"The models' courage and hard work is an inspiration and helps to make the show a really special event."
