    Nicole’s new House of Harlow 1961 footwear line and Winter Kate clothing launches in time for Spring.

    Fresh from the news of her engagement to Good Charlotte singer and long-term partner, Joel Madden, it seems that Nicole Richie is expanding her fashion empire.

    The style maven has just launched a new range of footwear for House of Harlow and three new ready-to-wear pieces for the clothing line Winter Kate first launched Richie’s debut House of Harlow jewellery collection in 2009 and it was a sell-out success. Now she’s hoping for the same for her footwear and clothing collections.

    Nicole Richie's new House of Harlow footwear - fashion news

    Nicole was pictured arriving for filming at The Late Show with David Letterman, where she announced her engagement to the audience, wearing a pair of ‘Rooney’ shoes from her own House of Harlow range.

    Both lines are full of looks one can imagine Nicole would wear herself. On the fashion side, the Winter Kate pieces are gloriously floaty and made from vintage silks. For the feet, the House of Harlow footwear ranges from cute little jazz shoes to towering pink armadillo-esque heels, to laser-cut leather booties.

    Nicole said of the new collections: ‘Fashion should be accessible. That was my philosophy when designing House of Harlow 1960 and it remains my philosophy for Winter Kate. I started working on this collection in early 2009, the pieces can be dressed up, made casual but most importantly, they provide the wearer a means of self-expression and fun.’

    Here’s hoping the new lines are a hit with the fans. Nicole can then put the extra income to use in paying for her dream wedding!
