Rihanna is venturing into design, As the River Island brand announced in Vogue magazine, the Barbadian artist will be designing her own collection for Spring 2013. Coinciding with the announcement, the singer commented that she has wanted to design her own clothes 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."
Over the past few years, Rihanna has become somewhat of a fashion icon, thanks to her constant changes in hairdos and her outfits on stage, in her private life or on the red carpet. The singer has earned the respect of fashion connoisseurs with her grace and self-confidence, wearing outfits by Tom Ford and Emmanuel Hungaro and alternating them with urban-style torn shorts or leggings.
