Rihanna's got a mad passion for fashion!
"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. 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."
Ben Lewis, chief executive of River Island, added:
"We are thrilled to be collaborating with Rihanna and to be the first fashion brand to work with her in this way. 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. Rihanna will be designing the collection and we will be sharing our fashion experience with her to develop a range her fans will love."
Apparently, there were rumors floating around about the collaboration ever since RiRi stopped by the London store in March and stepped out wearing a pair of their studded denim shorts (above).
A rumor that turns out to be true!? How rare!
We can't wait to see what Rihanna has in store when the collection drops in Spring 2013.
