In fashion’s current issues with waste and the industry’s effect on the environment, it seems that most modern practice designers can do with their lines is to make use of sustainable practices. This rings true for Nicole Miller, whose Fall 2019 show was all about touching upon the rebellious spirit of the youth. Part of what the younger generations are speaking out on today is how fashion is one of the more wasteful industries in the world. As a response, Miller took to recycling and upcycling her materials and classic signatures for her latest line. The cashmere sweaters that brought her fame in the early years of her career were either embellished or tie-dyed here, adhering to the current 90s nostalgia trend. And speaking of the 90s, that definitive decade was more evident with the grungy attitude in most of the looks, from the slouchy tailoring, pairing combat boots with floaty dresses, and a whole lot of plaid. In an effort to become a sustainable brand, Miller also made use of denim that was made out of recycled soda bottles into well-cut jackets and slightly oversized jeans. Despite harkening back to a previous decade, all the elements Miller used made this more contemporary than what she has offered in recent years!
