Rihanna Named New Designer For U.K. Fashion Line River Island
The 24-year-old R&B singer announced she will be designing an exclusive line for the British clothing brand River Island.
RiRi took to her website to break the news:
"I’ve been wanting to design my own collection for some time. River Island is the perfect partner for me to collaborate with and working with a British, family run business also really appealed to me," she wrote. "I find London really inspiring and River Island loves to have fun with clothes. I’m looking forward to working with them and creating something really special."
River Island, the high end U.K. brand is extremely excited to have the fashionista on their team, "We are thrilled to be collaborating with Rihanna and to be the first fashion brand to work with her in this way," Ben Lewis, River Island's CEO told Vogue. "Rihanna is a style icon; from street to chic she enjoys her fashion. As soon as we started to work together we knew this was a perfect fit."
The verdict is still out on when the River Island collection will hit stores, but the capsule Armani line is set to launch in 2013.
