Nicole creates her own clan of "Nicole Miller Warriors" (#NMWarriors) for fall 2014 inspired by female heroes ranging from real-life members of the Caribbean Taino tribe to fictional characters like Elle Driver, a member of the Deadly Assasin Squad in "Kill Bill". And let's face it...on some days don't we at least feel like having the attitude of a deadly assasin? Thanks Nicole Miller, for allowing us to fantasize about marching around the city or suburban haunts as if we were Daryl Hannah on a mission, even if that mission is simply to get to work on time, weave our way through supermarket aisles, busy streets, or look like the coolest chick in the room on a girl's night out.
Watching Nicole's models stomp out her fall looks is a reminder of why we love her. She designs for the urban woman on a mission. Nobody's going to mess with you while you're wearing a mitred fur vest, black quilted leather jacket, neoprene and silk top, and leather pant. Black, biker, crystals, and feathers...that's what we need to get through fall. Nicole is a master of creating modern day warriors. And thanks to her newly-created hashtag, I can't stop humming Patty Smyth's "The Warrior" off her yes, Scandal album, which closed the show.
"Shooting at the walls of heartache
I am the warrior" -Patty Smyth
