LVMH is one of the biggest luxury goods conglomerates in the world, and the list of companies under their wing is getting longer as we speak. Rihanna’s brand Fenty will soon stand shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Louis Vuitton, Dior, and Celine.
The first Fenty collection under the LVMH umbrella is set to debut in Paris later this year, and it’s a ground-breaking achievement for Rihanna. Her partnership with this global company makes her the first woman of color to lead an LVMH label.
CEO Bernard Arnault described Rihanna as “true entrepreneur, a real CEO and a terrific leader”. Famous singer had nothing but words of praise for him, as well, and said this collaboration is incredibly special moment for Fenty.
“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,” said Rihanna in an official statement.
