Rihanna makes a big power move. The mega superstar/designer announced that she has joined the world’s largest luxury group, LVMH. After news of the deal first leaked back in January, the Bajan star confirmed the news on Friday (May 10). According to The New York Times, along with Fenty joining LVMH’s list of iconic fashion houses, first products from the new company would also be unveiled in a few weeks. Rihanna will become the first woman to create an original brand at LVMH, the first woman of color at the top of an LVMH maison, and her line will be the first new house created by the group in 32 years.

Designing a line like this with LVMH is an incredibly special moment for us,” Rihanna said in the statement. “Mr. Arnault has given me a unique opportunity to develop a fashion house in the luxury sector, with no artistic limits. I couldn’t imagine a better partner both creatively and business-wise, and I’m ready for the world to see what we have built together.” She continued in a post on Twitter saying, “big day for the culture. thank you Mr.Arnault for believing in this little girl from the left side of an island, and for giving me the opportunity to grow with you at @LVMH.”
