Nicole Richie's designer ambition
Nicole Richie always wanted to design clothes and claims her organisation skills come in useful in her new career
Nicole Richie always wanted to design clothes.
The 28-year-old mother-of-two - who has a jewellery and accessories line, House of Harlow 1960 - doesn't mind working hard to make a name in the fashion industry and believes her organisation skills are perfect for her dream career.
She said: "Clothing was something I always wanted to do. I've been pulling tear sheets from magazines since I was a little girl.
"I'm a Virgo and I'm really good at scheduling. So there are 24 hours in a day and I'm up at 6.30am every day anyway."
Despite having two children - two-year-old daughter Harlow and five-month-old son Sparrow - Nicole insists she does not require a full-time nanny.
She said: "Not full-time, but I do have someone that helps me right now and, well, I have my mom, who's here."
Nicole also revealed she and her partner, Good Charlotte singer Joel Madden, made a conscious decision to have children close together in age.
She explained to Britain's Marie Claire magazine: "I'm 13 years older than my brother and I have a younger sister who is 12, so I think it's really great they're going to have each other."
