Reality celebrity Nicola Goodger ventures into fashion

Goodger, one of the stars of ITV2’s The Only Way Is Essex, has launched a fashion range.

Nicola found fame by appearing alongside her sister Lauren Goodger in the last season of the Essex set reality-drama but she has revealed she has a real passion for fashion and jewellery. Now she’s putting that to good use, working with upcoming designers and artists in the UK.

The selection is called the “Nicola G”, collection. She hopes this new venture will prove she’s more than just a reality star.

“I wanted something that was personal but also relatable to young women everywhere. It was important to me that I helped with the whole process of getting these t-shirts off the ground including creating the words for them” Nicola explaines.

Her first collection is a unique and artistic mix of affordable t-shirts with her own fun, quirky sentiments about life. One t-shirt reads ‘My heart belongs to Essex but the rest of me is up for grabs’ – sure to go down a storm with her young, female fans in her home county of Essex.

Nicola designed the t-shirts with South Coast artist Melanie Easthope, who has a special talent for drawing “words as art” and helps bring an element of originality and sophistication to the designs.

“The hand-drawn element of each design is very important, which is why we chose Melanie to help” Goodger says, adding, “These t-shirts are affordable, funky and they pretty much go with anything.”

The fashion range can be found at and other online boutique retailers, a jewellery range follows for Essex lovers later this year.
