Nicole Richie's Design Secrets

Nicole Richie has revealed her secret to designing a perfect line - she only creates items she would wear herself.

The 29-year-old beauty - who has fashion ranges House of Harlow 1960 and Winter Kate - is launching a new range of shoes, and she thinks it is important for them to comfortable as well as stylish.

She said: "My main goal for this particular collection - and for all the footwear that I design - is I want the shoes to look great but be comfortable at the same time.

"I'm a girl and I love shoes. Who doesn't want to make exactly what you want?"

The former reality star - who creates jewellery, clothes and shoes through her brands - plans to create a handbag range soon, and hopes they all have an individual feel.

She added to people.com: "It's important for me to give each one its own identity and really focus on what I want the specific collection to mean."

Nicole recently confesses she has a closet full of Chanel handbags.

Asked how many of the French designer's bags she had, she responded: "That's not a fair question! OK, 30, but I stole a lot of them from my mom!"
