Nicole Richie isn’t trying to “prove” anything with her fashion lines.

By Andrea Petrou on December 8th, 2011

Nicole Richie isn’t trying to “prove” anything with her fashion lines.

The former socialite – who runs House of Harlow 1960 and Winter Kate – admits her ranges will not “please everyone” but she knows how hard she works to get clothing out in the world she knows she loves.

She told website “It’s not about proving myself to anyone. At the end of the day, you can’t please everyone. You have to do things for yourself. I have had many moments in life where I haven’t gotten credit for the work I’ve done. And that’s OK with me.

“My process is still the same. I work very hard, and am serious about my work. That stays true whether anyone sees it or not.”

Style-conscious Nicole now believes choker necklaces are due a “comeback” and expects people to be wearing them regularly soon.

She said: “I went through a serious choker phase. I used to make them for my friends at school. I have a feeling they are going to be making a comeback very soon. Mark my words!”

However, she also thinks there are “no rules” when it comes to accessories and people should be allowed to wear whatever they choose.

She said: “Accessories speak volumes when it comes to a person’s wardrobe, especially when one is dressed down in jeans and t-shirt. So have fun with it-there are no rules.”

By Andrea Petrou on November 14th, 2011

Nicole Richie is designing a fashion line for QVC.

The 30-year-old designer will further expand her work with a “cute” range of clothing for the home shopping network, which will launch in February.

A source told “The line is cute – it can be worn by teeny-tiny girls but also goes up to size XXXL. Nicole has a great fashion sense, and she’s very hands-on.”

The launch of the line will tie in with the premiere of reality TV show ‘Fashion Star’, on which Nicole – who has a line of womenswear called Winter Kate, an accessories line called House of Harlow 1960 and Nicole, her maternity collection – acts as a mentor for aspiring designers.

The reality TV star – who was recently named Influencer of the Year at Accessories Council Excellence (ACE) Awards for House of Harlow 1960 – recently said she designs for women who are not “afraid to take risks” and enjoy having “fun” with their wardrobes.

Describing her typical customer, she said: “[She is] a multitasker, a woman who wears many hats, someone who isn’t afraid to take risks and have fun with fashion.”
