Richie Sambora wants his daughter to finish school before pursuing a showbiz career.

The Bon Jovi guitarist's 12-year-old girl Ava - his child with ex-wife Heather Locklear - made her catwalk debut in Los Angeles earlier this year when the rocker launched his White Trash Beautiful clothing label and though she enjoyed every minute of it, Richie is keen for her to complete her education before she does anything else.

Richie - who hosted the UK launch of the clothing line last night (23.06.10) with a lavish party at the Indig02 in London's O2 Arena - said: "She can do anything she wants to do but she needs to stay in school first - that's something I'm really set on and then she can pursue anything she wants."

However, Richie admits Ava is completely into her fashion and loves to dress up because she normally has to wear her restrictive school uniform.

The 50-year-old star - who created the line with designer and musician Nikki Lund - told BANG Showbiz: "She loves fashion and we make stuff for her to wear, which she thinks is really cool. She goes to a private school and has to wear a uniform normally so loves the opportunity to show off in the latest trends. She's a real fashionista."
