Nicole Miller uniquely combines the ideas of elegance and rebellion to achieve a fun and subtle sexiness that is the essence of modern femininity. In her hands, the drape and cut of designer clothes are transformed to a younger, more sophisticated look.
An American born to a French mother, Miller was dually trained at the Rhode Island School of Design and Paris’ Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture. RISD inspired her sense of freedom and creativity, and Chambre Syndicale a mastery of the classical techniques of couture.
Miller's silhouettes achieve a natural body consciousness that is sensual and dynamic. Often inspired by film imagery and exotic cultures, she is the pre-eminent American among fashion’s print and color elite. Her material selections are guided by a commitment to technological advance; she is often the first to introduce a new fabric and popularize it for wider use.
The non-conformist glamour of Miller’s clothes has caught the attention of many in Hollywood – with Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry, Jessica Simpson, Daryl Hannah, Hillary Duff and Felicity Huffman among those recently appearing in her designs.
