The show is to be at the heart of Sky Living’s 2012 programming schedule which will feature a raft of fantastic new British commissions.

Executive Producer, Rihanna said: “I’ve always had a great love of fashion. It’s a constant source of inspiration in my life, and is a big reason why I’ve grown into the person and artist I am today. I have been very fortunate to work with some truly amazing designers and stylists throughout my career, and they have been instrumental in making sure my creative vision reaches the stage. I am excited to follow the journey of our aspiring contestants and see how their individuality influences their efforts during the course of the show.”

The series is produced by Twenty Twenty production company and will air on Sky Living in the summer of this year.

Jane Johnson, Director of Sky Living, commented: “I am thrilled that Sky Living is working with Rihanna on her first ever TV project.

We’re looking forward to her bringing something new and very special to the channel.”
