Another celebrity is getting added to the New York Fashion Week lineup. Rihanna will follow in Kanye West’s footsteps with her first-ever New York Fashion Week show, presenting her premiere ready-to-wear collection with Puma. But something tells us this show will be well-received. For one, Rih is warning us of the date and time well in advance (unlike Kanye): February 12 at 8 p.m. And Rihanna is using the hype to give back to charity.
The CFDA Award winner tweeted a link to an auction page for her Diamond Ball charitable auction listing two tickets to the “Puma by Rihanna AW16 fashion show” for a mere $15,000. To be fair, you and your plus one will also get flown business class to New York for two nights, land front row seating, enjoy backstage access and an exclusive invite to the after party where you’ll hang out with Rihanna.
Did we mention the winner also gets the entire RTW collection and every color of her sold-out Creepers — with her signature on them? It’s worth the $15K for the signed shoes alone. All proceeds benefit Rih’s Clara Lionel Foundation, the humanitarian organization named after her late grandmother. Join us in placing your bid here.
