Cyndi Lauper's front-row presence at Nicole Miller's presentation was a harbinger of the '80s-inspired collection that followed. Wearing glitter socks with strappy metallic sandals, the models walked the runway in a dazzling array of iridescent Lurex pieces, gold denim and sequined prints. There were also matte jersey blouson and wrap dresses and, of course, a variety of prints, a Miller specialty.

Gold chains with large hanging pendants, made by Erickson Beamon for Nicole Miller, were creatively worn as necklaces, belts and even dress straps. Leather hip belts, also gold, were equally effective. "Roller-girl glam rock—but modern" are the words Coleman (Miller's music man) used to describe the show's sound, and they work just as well to characterize Miller's collection.
