Raise your shoulder pads and lower the veils on your hats, Frocktalkers. This is a big one. Nolan Miller, costume design icon, has left the building. Mr. Miller was a driving force behind the use of big ole shoulder pads in the 1980s, thanks in part to his incredible and fantastic work on Dynasty. The contribution that he made to our cultural environment in this time period can not be underestimated. His appreciation of the female shape – and the way he decorated it – influenced fashion houses all over the world. Nolan Miller defined a certain kind of glamour for this era, and I hope that his talent and skill will be appreciated for a long time to come. Rest in peace, Nolan Miller… and thanks for raising the bar.
