Nicki Minaj Narrates A Poem She Wrote For Monse Fall Winter 2018 Collection

Monse has grabbed Nicki Minaj and model Erin Wasson to debut their new Fall/Winter 2018 collection.

The Young Money Barbie wrote a poem that she narrated for the New York City fashion designer’s latest campaign.

“With the help of Fabien Constant (director) and Sebastien Perrin (composer), we were able to capture our favorite #monsegirl, Erin Wasson, as she plays a working woman on her way home from a long day of work. We used the iconic Coney Island for our location, as it presented the perfect balance between nostalgia and fun. When we shared the concept with Nicki Minaj and asked her to be involved, she felt inspired to write a narrative of a woman, who after a bad day, was able to collect herself and triumph through it… something that must have rung true for the housewives of that era”
