London: Singer Rihanna will create her own fashion line for British high street chain River Island.

The 24-year-old`s clothing collection will be available from next year.

"I`ve been wanting to design my own collection for some time. River Island is the perfect partner for me to collaborate with and working with a British, family-run business also really appealed to me," contactmusic.com quoted Rihanna as saying.

"I find London really inspiring and River Island loves to have fun with clothes. I`m looking forward to working with them and creating something really special," she added.
