Henry Holland joins new fashion TV show with Rihanna
You may recall that new fashion TV show to be headed by Rihanna which we blogged about a few weeks ago. Well now we hear that it will also involve Henry Holland. The British designer opened up to Grazia about his new TV gig.
"Rihanna's my new boss!" said Holland. "She's the coolest woman in the world. She looked so f-ing amazing at the Grammys! She knows what works on her; she never looks like she's been dressed. You can tell she loves fashion."
Rihanna will team up with Holland as well as Nicola Roberts for the new fashion-based series to screen on Sky Living this autumn. The show aims to feature "young aspiring fashion designers and stylists, who each week will be given assignments to design and style for a string of celebrities and musicians". The ultimate prize is the opportunity to design a costume for Rihanna's Wireless performance in Hyde Park on July 8.
Speaking of what they are looking for in their contestants, Holland says: "It's about creating something that fits within the musician's brief and image, but it also has to stay true to your own aesthetic as a designer."
