Okay, Glamazons, I'm excited.
Remember when I said Nicole Miller presents collection after collection of fabulous, but predictable, ruched dresses? Well, she surprised and thrilled me this season with a line devoid of her signature ruching. What showed instead were breathlessly beautiful garments which embodied the motif of ease and grace that will define the upcoming Spring season.
Silhouttes were fluid with airy yet fitted lines that were full of brevity. White was a strong trend (in several collections like BCBGMaxAzria and Port 1961 as well) but here, we see the hue in great separates that provide a tailored yet effortless fit on the body. Highlights were the sharp bone and beige trench coats and vests that brought structure to fluid sheer dresses and tops.
Miller experimented with sheer fabric in the most elegant way, creating sex appeal with an air of sophistication. This delights me as it shows that even though she's used new fabrics and experimented with a different aesthetic, she hasn't lost her penchant for creating sultry, womanly garments. This fact will surely delight her more trendy fans like Cassie, Keisha Whitaker and June Ambrose who filled the front row (pics below).
Prints were also a theme on the Nicole Miller runway with gorgeous blue and white watercolor and black and white painterly patterns showing up on languid, draped dresses.
The look is much more refined than previous seasons but garments, like the sheer top and skirt shown here on Rose Cordero, are packed with Miller's signature edge, youthfulness and femininity. I'm so impressed with this collection. Bravo!
Love the sleek, colorblocked heels!
Here's Nicole Miller backstage with the models.
What do you think of the line?
And check out the fashionable front row:
Cassie and Keisha Whitaker, wife of Forest Whitaker and co-owner of Kissable Couture with Celebrity Makeup Artist, A.J. Crimson made for a gorgeous front row.
Miss Cassie chose a sexy little black dress for the festivities.
Love Keisha Whitaker but not my favorite fashion moment from her.
