Pop icon Rihanna is to debut her clothing collection in collaboration with high street retailer River Island at an event during the forthcoming London Fashion Week.
Rihanna’s collaboration with River Island was initially announced back in July when it emerged that the singer was to design a capsule range of clothing and accessories for the retailer for spring 13.
However, it only emerged yesterday (January 17) that this would be unveiled at a special event at the start of LFW on February 16.
“Launching at London Fashion Week is a dream come true for me,” said Rihanna.
“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.”
River Island chief executive Ben Lewis added: “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’s collection will launch globally in River Island stores and online on Tuesday 5th March and exclusively in the United States and Japan at Opening Ceremony.
