One time party girl, now full time wifey/mommy and designer launches her latest collection.

Los Angeles - Am I the only one gagging at how the genius known as Nicole Ritchie managed to transform herself from a corny party girl to a legitimate designer (though, I could be using the term loosely.) Ritchies quest for relevance beyond Paris Hilton's sidekick is succeeding at a really stunning pace. What makes her collections (House of Harlow, followed by a maternity line for Pea in the Pod) good is that they don't feel like licensed products. Instead at every turn and with every item, Ritchie's personality, wardrobe and lifestyle seems to be well reflected. Case in point: Winter Kate, her latest venture. The thirty seven piece collection is pretty full on with vests, tops, dresses, coats (version from her line on the left) and accessories. It has a wide retail distribution in the U.S, selling at stores like Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Intermix and Kitson. In an interview with Womens Wear Daily, Ritchie says, "“Fashion should be accessible,” Richie said. “That was my philosophy when designing House of Harlow 1960 and it remains my philosophy for Winter Kate.”  (image via frillr)
