Having successfully released and promoted her seventh album Unapologetic, Rihanna is already on to the next as she’ll be showing her clothing collection in collaboration with high-street chain River Island during London Fashion Week for the first time next month.
Rihanna will launch her Spring/Summer 2013 collection on February 16th, debuting her clothing and accessory designs which will include jumpsuits and jackets, some of which we’ve had a sneak peek of on her Instagram (Rihanna also wears one of her jackets in her recent Complex magazine shoot).
Excited at the prospect of debuting in such a big arena, Rihanna says, ”Launching at London Fashion Week is a dream come true for me. I have wanted to design my own collection for a long time and to present my collection for River Island alongside all of the other great design talent at LFW is a real privilege. I can’t wait to see the reaction from my fans and the fashion press!”
Ben Lewis, the chief executive for River Island said, “We are very excited to present our Rihanna for River Island collection at London Fashion Week. This is the perfect platform to showcase Rihanna’s design talent and ambition.”
The singer announced last summer that she was joining forces with the UK high-street store to design a full women’s collection, building on from her previous underwear designs for Armani.
The full collection will be available in store in the UK and online from March 5th.
