She’s come a long way from her days of palling around with Paris Hilton on “The Simple Life.” This year, the mother of two introduced handbags to her growing lifestyle collection, House of Harlow 1960, which already included jewelry, shoes, sunglasses and apparel. Her vision is to create pieces that are a combination of casual and luxe — much like her own personal style. Here, Richie talks about how her style has evolved since she first burst on the scene in 2003.
WWD: How large of a role does your personal style play in your collection? Nicole Richie: I draw inspiration from various parts of my life and I absolutely would never design anything that I wouldn’t wear myself. But for me, the most important thing is to listen to my customers and get their feedback — I design for them.
