Rihanna took a break from New York Fashion Week last year. According to Vogue, the trendsetting pop star is returning with a presentation for Savage x Fenty, her body-positive lingerie and intimate accessories line.
A press release detailed the event as an “immersive experience.” The Bajan mogul is known to make great use of her social media presence. The fashion show will be another example of her fans’ buying power. The fall collection will be immediately available at SavageX.com once items hit the runaway. There will also be Pop-up shops at the Mall of America in New York City and other undisclosed locations.
The Savage x Fenty show is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 12 in Brooklyn, which makes it the unofficial closer of NYFW. Her annual Diamond Ball hosted by Issa Rae with a performance by Childish Gambino is the following night.
