In July, we reported that Barbadian songstress Rihanna would be launching her first apparel collection with British high street brand River Island. Even though, at the time, the details were a bit murky, we can now confirm that Rihanna will show her first collection at London Fashion Week.
According to WWD, the collection, which is comprised of both clothing and accessories, will debut at a special event in London on February 16.
In statement released to the press, Rihanna explains, “Launching at London Fashion Week is a dream come… 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!”
Though we’re a bit weary of celebrity collections, when it comes to Rihanna, our curiosity is piqued.
