Fall Fashion, Nicole Miller style
On October 29th I attended a Nicole Miller fashion show...yes I said Nicole Miller! The wonderful woman of the Stuart Society, an organization that raises money for the Museum of Fine Art in St. Petersburg, FL, hosted the event along with Saks Fifth Ave in Tampa, FL.
As a woman who loves and embraces fashion, this day is one that I will never forget. Standing amongst some of St. Petersburg's premier fashionistas, as these drank champagne and discussed labels, I got tons of tips for this fall--leggings are officially back-- and even some foreshadowing into the spring.
Though Nicole Miller was the only designer in the room, Christian Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik and Michael Kors--to name a few-- were there in garment, paired with Nicole Miller pieces.
After drinks, the ballroom curtains were pulled back, exposing pearl draped chandeliers, eloquently decorated tables with pink and white flowers, a fresh strawberry in each champagne glass and black and white gift bags for guests to enjoy eye-lifting creams and lipstick. In the center of the room sat an all white runway with enough light to land a commercial aircraft.
Once the guests settled in, Nicole Miller stood and acknowledged the room full of fashion savvy women, eager to get a sneak peek into what would hang in their closets in Spring 09.
To attempt to describe the garments would deprive everyone of what I witnessed first-hand. I will not even attempt to describe the beautiful pieces that Ms. Miller has created for the spring. Instead, because I am a photographer in training, I will let you see them for yourself. Check out the photos in my slideshow.
