Rihanna Hires Buzzy Shoe Designer Amina Muaddi for FENTY
Footwear News recently named her Designer of the Year.
Rihanna has hired shoe designer of the moment Amina Muaddi, who was recently awarded Designer of the Year by Footwear News, for a role at FENTY. Rih was originally introduced to Muaddi’s work when stylist Jahleel Weaver bought a few pairs for the chart-topping singer on Net-A-Porter. “[Weever] didn’t ask me for shoes; he just literally communicated that he had bought them for her. That was amazing,” Muaddi told Footwear News.
Muaddi, who designs footwear at Alexandre Vauthier in addition to spearheading her own line, infuses her playful shoes with a heavy dose of femininity and sex appeal, an aesthetic similar to that of FENTY. Her signature flared stilettos are among some of the most knocked-off styles today, an indicator of the designer’s rising success.
Stay tuned as Muaddi’s designs for FENTY drop.
