Nicky Hilton's fashion 'risks'
Nicky Hilton takes fashion "risks".
The 31-year-old heiress has revealed she loves to step out of her comfort zone when it comes to her personal style and enjoys experimenting with different looks to express herself.
She said: "Fashion, for me, is all about experimenting, taking some risks and stepping outside your comfort zone. There's no real rule when it comes to fashion. It's really just about expressing yourself and having fun."
The blonde beauty added she refuses to follow trends and prefers to find a signature look to make her own.
She explained: "I think it's all about being original and true to yourself. I think we live in a society where so many young girls are trying to dress like their favourite actor or musician, and it just looks like a bunch of clones walking around. I highly encourage women to find their own original sense of style and come up with [their] own trademarks."
Nicky - who has created a capsule collection of handbags for Linea Pelle, entitled NICKY HILTON x linea pelle, which will be released this autumn - has ensured her passion for "unique" designs is evident in the line and is "really pleased" with how her range has turned out.
She told Fox News Magazine: "I like finding unique bags. I'm sort of over the whole 'It-bag,' where every girl is carrying the same style. When I'm shopping for a handbag, I want something unique, and when I say unique, I mean a shape or print that I'm not going to see everyone and their mother carrying.
"I've collaborated with Linea Pelle on a small capsule collection [because] I've really wanted to embody my personality, aesthetic and taste into this line. I've featured my favourite shapes, styles and colours. I wanted to keep it really classic. I didn't really want to make something trendy.
"I'm really pleased with how the collection has turned out. Each piece is stylish and practical for every day. I try to always design timeless pieces that women will have in their wardrobes for years to come."
