Rachel Zoe is "terrified" about showing at New York Fashion Week.

The celebrity stylist is to showcase her debut fashion collection at the prestigious event this month and admits she's getting rather nervous.

She told website FabSugar: "Nervous, excited, petrified, anxious, terrified . did I mention terrified? I'm terrified."

However, she is excited about her upcoming spring 2012 runway show and can't wait to see the reaction it gets.

She said: "I think becoming a designer was that sort of thing that was inevitable on some level, and then also something that I really waited a long time to do because the timing had to be right. I just felt this was the time I was ready to do it.

"It is one of the scariest and most challenging things I've ever done, but also kind of the most exciting."

Rachel - who welcomed son Skyler into the world five months ago - recently compared her debut fashion range to "giving birth".

She said: "Being a designer was the thing that I always said, 'I'm never going to do this, because I'm too scared to do this'.

"All of sudden during my presentation this season, I was like 'Oh my god, why am I doing this, I'm too scared to do this. Then it was like, it was almost like giving birth.

"When it was over, I was like, 'This is the most exciting, most challenging adventure. This is new, and this is fun.' "
