Sofia Richie is launching a fashion label. Richie, the famous daughter of singer Lionel Richie and designer Diane Alexander, is preparing to unveil a fashion label of her own. The line, named Sofia Stone, marks her design debut. The collection is slated for a summer launch on Aug. 30, six days after Richie turns 21. “Over the years, buying so many clothes and seeing what I liked and didn’t like and being in the modeling industry, I was around so many designers and I always took notes and tips from them. It came easily and I knew all the little things I wanted and didn’t want,” Richie said. “A funny trick that I did is, inside of each of the pants, I’ve done a ‘snatch yourself’ thing where you can pull it and adjust the waist to your waist so that people don’t have to get things altered,” Richie said. “I constantly am having to get my clothes altered.” Tap the link in bio for more.
