Sofia Richie is making her design debut with a new fashion brand. The daughter of singer Lionel Richie and designer Diane Alexander will unveil the collection this summer.
According to WWD, the label is titled “Sofia Stone” after what would have been Richie’s middle names. It will debut in late August with a 12-piece collection that mirrors her own personal style, from bodysuits and crop tops to velvet high-waisted trousers and suits.
“I finally feel like I’m at the point in my life where I have so many creative ideas that I want to share and I’m bottled up,” Richie revealed. “Over the years, buying so many clothes and seeing what I liked and didn’t like and being in the modelling industry, I was around so many designers and I always take notes and tips from them. It came easily and I knew all the little things I wanted and didn’t want.”
Richie has forged strong connections in the fashion industry after starring in campaigns for Michael Kors and Tommy Hilfiger. She’s also taken to the runway for Dolce & Gabbana, Jeremy Scott and Kanye West‘s Yeezy Season 4 show.
The 20-year-old, of course, isn’t the first Richie to turn her hand to design. Older sister Nicole Richie has founded two clothing and accessories brands: House of Harlow 1960 and her latest venture, Honey Minx. The sisters’ father Lionel also has a home line at US store JCPenney. Meanwhile, Sofia’s boyfriend, Scott Disick, recently launched his own fashion brand, Talentless, which includes expensive T-shirts, hoodies, and accessories.
