Since Katty Perry has already made a name for herself in the cosmetics world with her Katy Kat CoverGirl collection, she’s now trying her hand as a fashion designer. According to WWD (Women’s wear daily), the singer recently linked up with Global Brands Group, the holding company behind a number of celebrity-helmed lines like JLo by Jennifer Lopez, Sean John and David Beckham, to create Katy Perry Footwear. Her debut collection will include a smattering of sandals, sneakers, stilettos and pumps that are just as bold and outlandish as the “Rise” singer herself.
Katy Perry‘s love for apparel that borders on full-blown kawaii cosplay is by now a well-documented fact. Her Super Bowl performance alone has enough quirky, cartoon-inspired, sculptural outfits to it, and this she brings to bear on her very own line of footwear. Have a Look.
This week, Sony Music Africa in conjunction with Trace TV revealed they are bringing an international act to Nigeria. He is none other than; Jidenna “The Classic Man”.
