Nicole Miller is a fashion designer with a modern, ageless aesthetic. Her silhouettes are artfully draped to achieve a unique body consciousness. Her signature is feminine, sexy and refined.
Together with her husband Kim Taipale and son Palmer, Miller divides her time between her homes in New York City and Sag Harbor, NY.
Miller draws inspiration from a wide range of influences including cinema, contemporary art, mid-20th century architecture and exotic cultures. She is known for elements of whimsy and surprise, and is the preeminent New York- based designer among global fashion's print and color elite.
An American born to a French mother, Miller was dually trained at the Rhode Island School of Design and Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. Her fine arts background in painting and sculpture at RISD inspired a spirit of freedom and creativity. On the other hand, Chambre Syndicale instilled a strong sense of aesthetics and a mastery of the classical techniques of couture.
The nonconformist glamour of Miller's clothes is a favorite of many in hollywood. Angelina Jolie, Halle Barry, Lauren Hutton, Leighton Meester, Eva Longoria Parker and Felicity Huffman have recently appeared in her designs. Her work is often shown on the covers and in the pages of leading fashion and lifestyle magazines world wide - and in cyber space, Nicole Miller is one of the most visible designer brand names anywhere.
A total of 15 Nicole Miller freestanding stores are located in major cities around the united states. Nicole Miller Signature, Collection and Studio apparel and accessories are also available at 1,200 fine specialty stores world wide and Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom and Bloomingdales.
Motivated by a desire to make her aesthetic accessible to a broader range of women, Miller designs the nicole by Nicole Miller collection offered at JC Penney stores in the United States.
