Rihanna will make her debut at London Fashion Week with her Rihanna for River Island clothing collection.

The pop star will showcase her collaboration with the British store as part of the capital's catwalk week next month.

Chart topper Rihanna announced the clothing line would be coming back in July last year, but as yet, little has been seen of the range.

She has posted a few sneak-peek pictures of her spring/summer 2013 designs on her page, but little else is know about the collection.

"Launching at London Fashion Week is a dream come true for me,'' Rihanna announced in an official statement.

"I have wanted to design my own collection for a long time and to present my collection for River Island alongside all of the other great design talent at LFW is a real privilege. I can't wait to see the reaction from my fans and the fashion press!''

Rihanna's highly anticipated debut into the apparel world will be revealed with an invite-only catwalk show on Saturday, February 16.

This will be followed by Rihanna's clothing and accessories launching internationally in River Island stores and online on Tuesday, March 5. The collection will also be stocked at Opening Ceremony in the US and Japan.

River Island's chief executive Ben Lewis said the grand unveiling of Rihanna's line at such a prestigious event matches her design aspirations.

"We are very excited to present our Rihanna for River Island collection at London Fashion Week,'' Lewis said.

"This is the perfect platform to showcase Rihanna's design talent and ambition.''
