Rihanna & Nicola Roberts Team Up For Fashion TV Show
RiRi & the Girls Aloud star are on the hunt for a new fashion designer…
Rihanna and Nicola Roberts have signed-up for a new fashion design reality TV show on Sky Living.
The You Da One singer has been confirmed to executive produce the competition – which hopes to discover a new fashion designer – while the Girls Aloud star will search for hopefuls who want to break into the industry.
Contestants will be given a number of challenges throughout the show, where they will have to create outfits for a variety of different celebrities over the course of ten weeks.
The eventual winner will bag the chance to dress RiRi in a show-stopping outfit for her Wireless Festival performance in July.
Speaking of the project, the Bajan babe said: “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.”
Rihanna added: “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.”
Roberts went on to state that she was “excited” and “flattered” to be working alongside RiRi, saying: “There are talented people, undiscovered because they don’t have the means or their circumstances are too far away from the fashion world,
“This show is here to discover those people and give them a shot. I’m looking for someone who can think outside the box while using their imagination, someone who isn’t going to give up at the first hurdle and ultimately someone who can’t be undiscovered anymore.”
The Beat Of My Drum hitmaker concluded: “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.”
As well as being the programme’s executive producer, RiRi will also be involved in the casting process and editing.
The show is due to hit Sky Living this summer.
