Rihanna is her own fashion muse and plans on dropping more pieces from her Fenty collection throughout the year.

The 31-year-old recently made history by becoming the first woman to create a brand for LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton, with her new limited-edition line of clothing and accessories debuting in the U.S. on Wednesday at New York store The Webster.

At the launch, Rihanna divulged that the items are greatly inspired by her own wardrobe and confessed she will be dropping further Fenty collections at unspecified times as she doesn’t want her fans to get “bored” while waiting for fresh designs.

“I get bored easily,” the singer told WWD. “I’m the muse of my collection. They want to get excited; they don’t want to know when things are coming out. They don’t want to wait for it to come. They see it, they love it, they want it. You don’t want to tease people.”

She also told reporters at the event that she’s enjoying the experience of working with LVMH executives and wanted to try her hand at designing in order to hone her skills before collaborating with the luxury goods conglomerate.

“It’s incredible. I have a brand-new playground. You get to play in a bigger sandbox and a more serious sandbox,” Rihanna gushed. “It’s still fun, I still get to express myself creatively, but it’s at a whole new level. You respect it in a different way almost. It’s just this incredible opportunity to make a mark while making history at the same time.

“I started small and I started collaborating and I wanted to not only get my feet wet and learn, but also have the credibility as a fashion designer before I stepped up with something on my own.”

The Webster is the first store in the world to sell the Fenty collection.
