During the event, Rihanna says, “I’m feeling very proud.  Very grateful and lucky and blessed to be in a position and have this incredible opportunity to create something from scratch with LVMH.  The Fenty woman probably cannot be described because she is multi-faceted.  She does not even know what she wants to wear.  She dresses according to her mood and occasion and how she’s feeling and I think all women are like that.”  Rihanna continues, “The first drop is really just about having a strong statement piece.  There’s so many strong pieces, but of course I love the men’s tailoring, but I love the juxtaposition of throwing in a little feminine curve in there with the corsetry.”
