Rihanna for River Island


Rihanna has designed a clothing range for River Island and says it has "sassy personalities" in mind.

Ahead of the collection's debut at London Fashion Week next month, the singer explains her design motivation:

I've wanted to design my own fashion line for a very long time. This has been something I wanted to do ever since I started loving fashion. I got passionate about it.

"I just felt like every time I saw something on a rack, there was something I wanted to do to change it," she adds.

Along with co-designer Adam Selman, the signer has come up with a range that is "casual, chic and flirty" and is aimed at all body types.
