Rihanna unveils fashion collection

Rihanna has turned from singer to designer, unveiling her debut clothing collection at London Fashion Week.

Hip-hop music, smoke machines and champagne greeted guests at the launch of Rihanna for River Island on Saturday night. The collection will be on sale from next month (March 2013).

The pop star has joined the likes of Victoria Beckham and Madonna in creating her own fashion line and was in the UK for its debut.

The clothes echoed the singer's own style, featuring bra tops, dresses slashed to the thigh, tummy-baring tank tops and thigh-high boots.

Many had a simple, monochrome look in off-reds, yellow, navy, black and other colours and materials included satin, jersey and denim.

Rihanna also tried her hand at a few elegant, semi-sheer dresses that were predominantly black with white floral patterns.

The singer, from Barbados, appeared unusually shy but happy when she appeared on the catwalk at the end of the show.

After the show, Rihanna celebrated with her friend, Melissa Forde and Burberry model Cara Delevigne at London's nightclub, The Box last night (February 16).
