Nicole Richie has revealed that designer Vera Wang turned her on to fashion at a young age. Nicole explains that she used to compete as a figure-skater and noticed Wang's amazing pieces for the Olympic team which encouraged her further to look at more designers and it opened up a whole new world for her. Now with several fashion businesses of her own, Nicole explains how her interest began: ''My love of fashion kicked off when I was 11. I was competing as a figure-skater, designing all my own costumes with my father [Lionel Richie]'s tour costume designer. This was at the time Vera Wang designed Olympic figure-skating costumes and when I noticed big designers like her, I started getting into fashion.''

The designer says that when she was a teen she would pass her time off in summer by creating fashion collages: ''I remember my parents dragging me to Alabama every summer as a teenager. I hated it, so I would buy fashion magazines, cut out my favourite outfits, then make collages to ease the boredom! It sparked a desire to design.'' 

Nicole adds that she doesn't love shopping but is a fan of browsing online and usually knows what she's after without having to look too hard for it: ''I'm not a big shopper. I've never been a 'let's do lunch and hit the shops' girl. I'll browse net-a-porter or see collections on photo shoots. I always have an idea of what I want, then I figure out a way to find it.''
