Rihanna has teamed up with the UK’s Sky Living TV to create a new fashion series. She’ll be executive-producing and appearing in the new fashion show exclusively for Sky Living HD in the UK.
The show, is said to be, similar to that of Heidi Klum‘s own American fashion series ‘Project Runway’. Joining her will be ‘Girls Aloud’, a London pop group, singer Nicola Roberts to kick off the competition.
About the show Rihanna says,
“I’ve always had a great love of fashion. It’s a constant source of inspiration in my life, and is a big reason why I’ve grown into the person and artist I am today. I have been very fortunate to work with some truly amazing designers and stylists throughout my career, and they have been instrumental in making sure my creative vision reaches the stage. I am excited to follow the journey of our aspiring contestants and see how their individuality influences their efforts during the course of the show.”
Nicola added, “I was so flattered when Rihanna asked me to work with her on this show. I’m so excited for us to get started on finding a new up and coming British designer who just needs a chance, a little bit of help in getting their skills noticed…I love both Rihanna’s music and her style. I love that she isn’t afraid to try new things. Her style is personal and that’s something I’m a fan of. You can see a genuine love for fashion in her. She is definitely one of my style icons.”
I agree, Rihanna is certainly a fashion icon in her own right. Too bad the show is based abroad, would love to have seen her do the show in the states.
The show is set for release later this summer.
