Rihanna will executive produce a television show this summer in the U.K . It’s a fashion show competition. “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.”
According to RihannaDaily.com, Rihanna’s show “will celebrate the extraordinary talent and creativity in the British fashion scene. With Rihanna, a fashion icon herself, and Nicola [Roberts] who created her own Dainty Doll make-up range, at the helm, the show will recognise the increasing influence popstars have on mainstream trends.”
“I was so flattered when Rihanna asked me to work with her on this show,” Roberts said. “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. There are talented people, undiscovered because they don’t have the means, or their circumstances are too far away from the fashion world.”
Rihanna’s show will air fairly soon and the winner of the competition will get a chance to design an outfit for the Bajan’s July 2012 Hyde Park performance.
