Nicole Miller is known for her ready to wear right off the runaway collections. During New York Fashion week, her collection was inspired by “Molas,” Molas are pieces of traditional garments worn by the Kuna women in Panama and Colombia. They are typically brightly colored patterned panels that are sewn together, which when paired correctly can create a striking fashion forward design. Nicole Miller did just that with her collection; “I was visiting a gallery that was exhibiting this art,” said Miller, in an interview with Vogue. “They had a collection of vintage molas that were absolutely beautiful. I bought them to frame, but then decided they would make beautiful fabric and embroidery.” Down the runway we saw plunging necklines, geometric Mola patterns with colorful feather and flower details. Her collection had a mixture of sleek, tight and fitted, to lose and floaty. The results of her combination of fashion and traditional Molas birthed instant versatile pieces, and we could not have expected any less from her.
