Advanstar has confirmed that creative director of House of Harlow 1960, author, entrepreneur and fashion icon, Nicole Richie, will deliver The Big Interview Keynote address at Licensing Expo.
The keynote will take place on Tuesday, June 17th at 2.30pm and will run as a Q&A session, moderated by License Global.
Richie is the founder and creative director of the House of Harlow 1960 brand, which she launched in 2008. The label encompasses jewellery (in partnership with Glamhouse), eyewear, handbags, shoes and ready-to-wear (in partnership with Majestic Mills).
Richie also launched a perfume - Nicole by Nicole Richie - in 2012, as well as the Nicole Richie Collection for QVC and an Impulse Collection for Macy's.
"I am thrilled to be addressing the executive audience of licensing and brand extension professionals at Licensing Expo," Richie commented. "I've learned more than I ever imagined through the years while driving the creative vision of my brand extensions through House of Harlow 1960, Glamhouse, Majestic Mills, Modern Vintage, QVC, Macy's and Marks & Spencer.
"Today there are many places/channels for a designer to express their point of view and distribute their merchandise and I'm looking forward to sharing my experiences with branded product with Licensing Expo attendees and providing a #candidlynicole look into the industry."
Richie will exhibit alongside brands such as Juicy Couture, ále by Alessandra, Von Dutch and Kathy Ireland Worldwide among others in the new Fashion & Lifestyle zone at the show.
