Rihanna says Kate Moss inspired her to design a clothes range.
The singerâ€™s interest in fashion has led her to launch her own collection. Rihanna is a huge fan of British supermodel Kateâ€™s designs for high street chain Topshop and is keen to create a line which is just as successful.
â€œIâ€™ve started work on the collection, we are getting it together. It is in the beginning stages. Fashion is something I have always loved,â€ Rihanna told Grazia magazine. â€œI love Kate Moss. Sheâ€™s just hands-down one of the baddest badasses in the land. Nobody can take her down. I really admire Kate because every photo shoot she does is different. Every time you see her there is a different energy that she puts out in whatever outfit she is wearing. I think she is amazing.â€
Rihanna is thrilled to have been given the opportunity to design clothes because it gives her an avenue to express herself away from her music career.
She explained: â€œI am a very creative person, so it is another way for me to get my creativity out.â€
The 21-year-old beauty has been taking advice from Gucciâ€™s creative director Frida Giannini after being unveiled as the face of the Italian fashion houseâ€™s accessories last year. Rihanna is hoping to work with a range of fashion experts for the new line.
â€œI love designing. Frida has been helping me develop as a designer. I will probably work with some cool designers who I think have a similar sense of style and design to me.â€
