New York- September 12, the great musician/ businesswoman Rihanna debuted her Savage X Fenty lingerie collection at New York Fashion Week in Fenty’s first runway show. It showcased women of different shades and body types, including two pregnant women. The goal Rihanna had going into this project was to create a collection of lingerie which could fit a large range of sizes and designs to highlight all skin tones and body types, while at the same time looking good and feeling even better.

“Women are the strongest, strongest [sic] people on earth,” Rihanna said in an interview with Enews. She further explains the process of womanhood includes motherhood and: “if you have the blessing to be able to bring life into this world, it should be celebrated as well.”

The setting of the room was based off nature and the environment, as well as the inspiration of a bio-dome with a desert section, a hydroponic greenhouse, and, finally, a rotating stage. At first, I thought this would be a typical runway show where models walk and advertise the clothes and its designers. It wasn’t until I saw two women wearing matching lace sets performing beautiful dances with symbolic choreography, that I believed that this collection would be way out of the ordinary.

Throughout the show, I found myself questioning the models walking. The feeling of disgust appeared with the thought that models are all expected to be skinny and tall. Soon after seeing Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Joan Smalls, and Slick Woods, who at the time was pregnant, I realized how in this runway there were no models, there were women expressing their love for their body and how the collection helps give confidence to day-to-day women.

While the women walked, the crowd cheered and applauded Rihanna’s authenticity and originality, which the runway portrayed. The audience could be heard screaming “I want all of it!” repeatedly as the models walked. It was surprising hearing the crowd yell and scream how impressive they perceived that show, collection, and people to be.

At the end of the show, as “ Love Me Tender” by Elvis Presley played in the background, wearing a brown tube dress and matching headscarf untied to reveal her face, Rihanna took a bow. Surrounding her were all the dancers, including the models, who held hands in solidarity. This is perhaps one of the greatest endings New York Fashion week will ever see.It showed confidence, it showed strength, it showed compassion, and, most importantly, it showed all forms of beauty.

This line could all be yours. It is accessible for a range of bodies and budgets. From sizes 32A to 40DDD, undies, and sleepwear running into XS to 3X. Costs range from $12.50 and $115.When Rihanna took the makeup industry by storm [realeasing 40 shades of foundation] one can only believe that Savage X Fenty runway would give that same extraordinary reaction.

At last, I would like to end with this thought: Beauty itself is subjective. It can’t be seen in the common eye. We as women come in all shapes, colors, and sizes and it will only bring us closer to accept the individual for who she is. This is why we as a society need to celebrate women and the sisterhood in which makes us stronger.
