Her sister Paris may be the most talked about Hilton, but Nicky is certainly making her own headlines in the fashion world. At just 17 she designed handbags for Japanese brand Samantha Thavasa before creating a clothing line called Chick by Nicky Hilton in 2004. Now, the 26 year-old heiress is adding to her design resumé with a costume jewelry collection set to launch for fall. “I’m a crazy jewelry collector,” Hilton tells WWD. “I’ve always known since I was a teenager that I wanted to do a line. Whenever I bought something, whether at a flea market in Paris or a bazaar in India, I’ve been collecting pieces.” Partnering with Titan Brands, Hilton is creating a collection that promises to be “high quality without the high price tags,” according to WWD. Her new line will include three collections: Art Deco, inspired by her mother and grandmother’s David Webb pieces, as well as Spikes and Snakes, which will span everything from classic Deco to contemporary edgy styles. Wholesale prices for the line will range from $35-$480. Hilton’s new costume jewelry collection will be sold exclusively at through this year.
