Aaliyah for MAC
Who says you can’t make a difference via social media? After a very lengthy campaign, fans of Aaliyah have finally convinced MAC to release a collection honoring the late R n’ B diva. Thursday evening the cosmetics giant announced plans to release an Aaliyah-inspired collection in 2018, some 17 years after the singer’s death.
“We admire Aaliyah because she was not only an exceptionally talented artist but a risk taker and innovator who still influences the worlds of music, fashion and beauty,” Catherine Dougherty, Senior VP of MAC Communications, said in a statement. “She continues to be a role model whose legacy inspires us all to follow our hearts and we are honored the family trusted MAC to bring Aaliyah and her fans’ vision to life.”
The MAC x Aaliyah Collection will debut sometime next year, and according to the company, was a full collaboration between them and the singer’s family. The collection will reportedly celebrate many of Aaliyah’s famous looks and iconic imagery from her videos, as well as live performances and movie roles.
