Nikki Grahame is set to mark her first foray into the world of fashion by launching her very own clothing collection.
The Big Brother star will launch her petite clothing range in association with new boutique JYY.London next month and the 33-year-old has expressed her excitement about her new adventure.
She said: “I’m overly excited about it all, I really want to shock people with it, not in an offensive way but I want people to be like, wow totally didn’t expect that from her".
Her range, titled 'Nikki for JYY.London', will officially launch on September 14th and item will be available to buy exclusively from the JYY.London website.
The petite collection will feature over 20 pieces including dresses, trousers, jeans, tops and accessories with sizes ranging from 2 to 12.
The star, who made her third stint in the Big Brother house as a BB Legend, cannot wait to release her clothing line at the upcoming launch.
She said: "It’s something that myself and the JYY team have been planning and designing for a while and I’m so happy it’s just around the corner and I can start telling people!
"I love a good old party too, the launch will be great, I’m doing it at The Sanctum in Soho, the range will have its first real preview there in the catwalk show which is nerve wracking, I just hope everyone loves it as much as I do.”
Jeyda Yilmaz, owner of the JYY.London, said: “Nikki is such a great girl, and I think she is a real role model to many girls out there.
"I really wanted JYY to do a petite range and as soon as I met with Nikki I knew she’d be perfect to work with on it, she’s fun, she’s pretty, she’s very creative, and she’s got a naturally healthy petite frame”.
Speaking about the collection, Nikki said: “I’ve been on buying trips and been designing a lot of things myself. From the very start I said I wanted to be really hands on, from picking fabrics to designing labels and I feel like I’ve succeeded.
"I know there will be people expecting this to be a tacky sort of celeb clothing range but I really want to prove people wrong.
"I think the collection will be a nice surprise to people, a lot of the things in it I would ordinarily have walked past in a shop but I decided when designing items and buying, to really look at things that wouldn’t usually be my taste and it’s really worked.
"My whole wardrobe has practically changed now and I love it."
The tabloid favourite, who suffered with anorexia for a decade, is happy to release a range that is dedicated to women with smaller frames as she has previously struggled to find clothes to fit her petite figure.
She said: "I’m excited that it’s a petite collection too because sizing is always something I struggle with! I think there are many girls out there with naturally small frames yet very few places to get clothes tailored to that smaller fit.
"Plus size collections are everywhere at the moment, which is fantastic, but petite ranges are few and far apart and it can make life very difficult at times so I guess I’m doing my bit to help!”
