Robyn Rihanna Fenty made the news round earlier in the month after flipping over an electric scooter that bruised her forehead and face. But today, the spotlights are on her fashion house, Fenty Fashion. The fashion house, whose headquarter is in Paris, France, is founded under the fashion group LVMH (Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton) and started operation in May 2019. However, it seems her fashion house now has a new sheriff.
In recent news, the Barbadian businesswoman and singer now has a new managing director running her fashion house. It is understood that Bastein Renard has taken up the role. In a much-needed confirmation, he has updated his LinkedIn profile to reflect the Managing Director, Fenty. His bio gives away the very reasons for such an appointment.
“With a background in product creation and authentic knowledge of youth culture, I lead teams that combine art and science to connect deeply with customers and deliver pioneering executions – across digital platforms and retail.”
Renard is said to have 19 years of work experience – his most recent roles being the VP and general manager at Nike before quietly joining the fashion start-up in recent months. Hopefully, he is the perfect man to lead the fashion house to stardom.
