Jay-Z’s venture firm Marcy Venture Partners LLC and growth-equity firm Avenir Growth Capital were reported to have invested $50 million into Savage X Fenty. Bringing the total amount invested in the company to roughly $70 million, according to the Wall Street Journal. The company is estimated to have generated $150 million in revenue in 2019.
Rihanna’s Puma Partnership
Ms. Fenty partnered with Puma in 2014 as creative director for the womenswear line. This partnership turned into a collaboration under her own name Fenty x Puma. Her time at Puma resulted in one of the most highly-coveted celebrity sneaker collabs with the Fenty Puma Creeper. Fenty Puma Creeper took home FN’s Shoe of the Year award in 2016. The sneaker was a blockbuster hit and generated strong global sales.
