Rihanna is known for her trendsetting fashion, and now you too can own a piece of it. The pop star debuted her first fashion collection, Rihanna for River Island, during London Fashion Week on Saturday. After kicking off the show an hour late, models strut down the runway to Memphis Bleek’s “Do My…,” A$AP Rocky’s “Fuckin’ Problems,” and RiRi’s own, “Phresh Out the Runway.”

Wearing a black dress from her line, the fashion darling took a bow during the finale as the crowd cheered her on.

In an interview with Elle, RiRi explained that her goal was “to design for all body shapes and when women have a fat day and want to hide bits of their bodies.”
