  • Take a behind-the-scenes look at Rihanna's debut River Island show at London Fashion Week autumn/winter 2013

    Pop superstar Rihanna presented her debut clothing collection for high street store River Island at London Fashion Week this weekend, and now we can bring you a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the event.

    The video clip begins by showing the construction of the scaffolding-style structure that replaced the traditional catwalk at the show, before star front row guests, including models Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn who are rumoured to be starring in the line’s ad campaign, begin to fill the Old Sorting Office venue.

    ‘London Fashion Week is something I’ve never done,’ Rihanna says in the video. ‘Like I’ve never even attended it, so my first fashion week in London is my show, and that’s amazing!’


    She goes on to describe the kind of girl she envisions wearing the ’90s-inspired spring collection, saying that they would be ‘full of personality, full of sass but love fashion’.

    And as a teaser of what to expect from her next offering for autumn/winter 2013? ‘We’re not stopping, we’re coming,’ she says. ‘I really can’t wait, it’s a whole different flip from the spring/summer collection, so it will be exciting!.
