Nicki Minaj To Debut An “Affordable & Rich Quality” Clothing Line In 2013
Nicki Minaj may sing about Oscar De La Renta on her track “Come On A Cone.” But, it looks like the rapper may be the next big name in fashion designers. Currently the face of the Adidas Originals 2012 campaign, Nicki recently revealed her plans to design her very own clothing line, which is definitely music to the ears of her millions of fans.
“Well, I’m putting my fragrance out in September. We’re also working on a clothing line. I’m trying to launch that next year,” Nicki revealed in an interview with Rolling Stone recently. “We have the designs, the designers, all of that stuff. We’re just looking for a place and deciding where we’re gonna go with the brand. We’ve had a couple offers from a lot of big players. I’m really looking forward to it because I feel like my fans are always asking me, ‘Where’d you get this? Where’d you get that?’ and sometimes they can’t afford certain things, so my biggest goal was to make a line that was going to be affordable to my fans and also rich enough in quality that they’ll feel like they’re wearing exactly what I’m wearing.”
Known for her outlandish outfits and Black Barbie style, Minaj admitted that her clothes will be a reflection of both her feminine side and her masculine alter ego Roman Zolanski. “It’ll be Harajuku Barbie, put it that way,” the 29-year-old pop star said to describe the look of her designs. “I think it’ll kinda have both those alter egos somewhere in there.”
The Young Money starlet also gave details about what to expect from her upcoming fragrance. “I sprayed the perfume for a few of my fans at the meet-and-greet at the tours and they’re like, ‘It smells like heaven.’ [Laughs] They’re like, ‘It’s so soothing.’ It has, like, floral and woodsy undertones. It’s just really, really sweet. It’s really refreshing,” she said adding that some of her famous pals have given their approval of her scented venture. “I sprayed it for Drake and he was like, ‘Yeah, I’d like it if my girl smelled like that.’ So, I’ve been getting a lot of opinions on it. The guys seem to like it and the girls are gonna love it.”
