She might have missed the MET gala, but you can be sure as hell that Rihanna has been working on something huge behind the scenes.
We were made to know what that was and it is her history making luxury fashion brand with LVMH.
The pop star partnered with the beauty giants and together they will be launching Fenty Maison, a ready-to-wear, shoes, and accessories label that is set to be released soon.
This is huge news for everyone as with Rihanna, LVMH has for the first time since 1987 created a new fashion house.
A New York Times report also states that “Rihanna will become the first woman to create an original brand at LVMH, the first woman of color at the top of an LVMH maison, and her line will be the first new house created by the group since Christian Lacroix in 1987. It joins such storied heritage brands as Dior, Givenchy, Celine and Fendi and positions Rihanna as a breakthrough designer on a number of levels.”
Rihanna released a statement in which she expressed excitement for the new project, “Designing a line like this with LVMH is an incredibly special moment for us. Mr. [Bernard] Arnault has given me a unique opportunity to develop a fashion house in the luxury sector, with no artistic limits,
“I couldn’t imagine a better partner both creatively and business-wise, and I’m ready for the world to see what we have built together.”
She also took to her Twitter to talk about the deal stating, “Big day for the culture. Thank you Mr.Arnault for believing in this little girl from the left side of an island, and for giving me the opportunity to grow with you at @LVMH”
