London: Nichole Richie displayed a keen interest in fashion as a youngster when she used to design her own clothes from dad Lionel Richie’s stage dress materials.

Nicole would give her own designs to her dad`s wardrobe mistress, requesting her to make the outfits out of the left over pieces of his costumes.

"When I was a little girl and my dad was touring, I would make his costume designer make outfits for me out of the extra fabric. I was really making my own clothes, or designing them at least!" The Daily Star quoted Nicole, as telling Glamour mag.

Nichole has now taken fashion as a career and launched her own House of Harlow 1960 fashion house label, which includes her line of jewellery, clothes and shoes.
