Hot in Harlow, Cute in Kate: The Best Pieces From Nicole Richie’s Fashion Empire
Nicole Richie has been dubbed the queen of “boho chic” and has found a way to transform her effortless yet sophisticated sense of style into a lucrative fashion business. The adopted daughter of legendary singer Lionel Richie, who has a net worth of about $4 million, has appeared in ads for Bongo jeans and Jimmy Choo, which no doubt fueled her interest in the business of fashion even further. Richie’s first fashion accessories line, House of Harlow 1960, named for her daughter, is a nod to the vibrant colors and geometric jewelry and shoes that were a vital part of 60s style. The line was launched in 2009, along with Nicole Richie’s Winter Kate collection (also named after her daughter), which features the over-sized blouses, maxi skirts and dress shorts that are staples in bohemian wardrobes. Richie also created a line of maternity clothing for Pea in the Pod, and modeled the clothing during her own pregnancies.
In February of this year, the fashion mogul introduced the Nicole Richie Collection for QVC; the prices for clothing begin at about $75, making the outfits more affordable to the general public. According to Richie, she wanted this line to give women something fabulous to wear at a moment’s notice, at a budget-friendly price. With the power of QVC behind the line, the Nicole Richie Collection has a great chance for success–much like the designer’s other ventures.
