20 Years of Nicole Miller Philadelphia

The beautiful women of Philly came out to celebrate two decades of fashion.


The paparazzi were out in force last night as the beautiful women of Philadelphia packed the Shops at the Bellevue as designer Nicole Miller (above, left) and Mary K. Dougherty (above, second from right) celebrated 20 years of dressing Philadelphia at their Center City store. Mary K Dougherty, owner of Nicole Miller Philadelphia with stores in Center City and Manayunk, and designer Nicole Miller posed for photos with their guests, and thanked them for coming during the 3-hour event.

The overflowing crowd spilled into the hallway, but when I finally made it into the store, it was decorated with balloons, streamers, and many of the women were wearing Nicole Miller through the decades. Lauren Collabelli was wearing the outfit she wore on the night she met her husband, John, several years back; Linda Swain wore a vintage ’90s Nicole Miller Grateful Dead jacket; and Lynsie Solomon wore a current black-and-white Nicole Miller dress. There was a light buffet from The Palm restaurant, spirits, and a gorgeous and delicious cake created by Sweet T Bakeshop.

    A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to travel
    to Canada for the second time in six months. My first trip was in December,
    when admin was invited to present at theI gave a presentation at a special
    freelancer segment of the conference, and was completely blown away by the
    reception, hospitality and level of excitement around oDesk and online work.
    oDesk had achieved rockstar status. Luckily I had 26 hours of return travel in
    a coach seat to bring me back down to reality.
