In Newswhistle’s weekly question-and-answer series, Clara Morgan speaks with some of the world’s top beauty and style influencers and finds out more about their lives and careers.
This week, Clara speaks with internationally-renowned fashion designer, Nicole Miller.
Upon graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design, where she graduated with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree in Apparel Design, she spent a year in France studying at l’École de la Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture Parisienne.
These two degrees have enabled Miller to utilize her arts education with the haute couture technique to create a unique vision for her eponymous clothing line. Her line has a wide celebrity appeal with fans including Angelina Jolie, Joss Stone, Jennifer Aniston, Beyoncé, Blake Lively, and Eva Longoria.
