Brendan ForbesNormani has lined up a new gig while Fifth Harmony is on hiatus — and it has nothing to do with music.
Instead, Normani is diving into the fashion world by signing a modeling contract with Wilhelmina. She explains the decision in a new interview with Vogue.
“I’ve always wanted to get into the fashion space,” she tells the mag. “Now, more than ever, I feel like music and fashion play off of each other with music being one of the great influences and artists dominating in the fashion space as well.”
Normani joins the roster of musicians who also have contracts with Wilhelmina, including Shawn Mendes, Nicki Minaj and Niall Horan.
Normani says she looks to Rihanna as inspiration when it comes to balancing projects in both music and fashion.
“She didn’t transition from music to fashion, she did both at the same time and made it her own,” Normani says. “The fact that she just came out with a lingerie line for women of all shapes and sizes, and is out there really representing every woman so no one feels left in the dark, is something that I would [also] hope to do.”
Last Friday, Fifth Harmony played their final concert together before going on an indefinite hiatus to pursue solo endeavors.
