Rita Ora is new global brand ambassador for Thomas Sabo. German jewelry maker Thomas Sabo has revealed that Rita Ora is the brand’s new global ambassador.
Although the ‘Your Song’ singer will begin her work with the brand with the jewelry line when the autumn-winter collections come out, Ora took to her social media to thank the brand, after she wore Thomas Sabo custom jewelry at her show in Cardiff a few days earlier
She captioned a photo of herself on Instagram: “Thank you so much @thomassabo for my custom jewellery last night #ad”
As well as singing, presenting and acting, Rita has also being flexing her design skills recently.
In 2014, she collaborated with Adidas and this year, she will co-design a footwear collection with German shoe retailer Deichmann.
She’s also signed on as a brand ambassador for fashion label Escada, customising a signature handbag for the brand, as well as designing an exclusive footwear collection with Giuseppe Zanotti.
She said: ” We really clicked, so we decided to do something that embodied Giuseppe’s and my personality. Zanotti shoes are so sexy, it’s really nice to be able to wear shoes and feel that way.
“I’ve always loved his slides, so I knew we had to do a pair, it was a shoe that I remember always wanting, then saving money for, and buying. I also really like the look of PVC so that definitely had to be included.”
And Zanotti revealed that working with Rita was the perfect partnership, saying: “I love working with artists because they’re very efficient. In both our lines of profession we need to research everything, everywhere and every day. She’s very multitasking, and I admire that.
“I used to buy shoes at vintage markets, cut them up and Scotch tape parts together. It’s nice after 20 years to go back to the past to work in a very artisanal way. I was painting the shoes and changing lines with scissors.”
Thomas Sabo is no stranger to collaborating with celebs.
The brand’s first face was Katy Perry back in 2011, followed up with the likes of Poppy Delevingne, Georgia May Jagger and pro-tennis player Sabine Lisicki.
The company has also worked with F1 driver Nico Rosberg and violinist David Garnett on its men’s jewelry and watches.
