Designer Nicole Miller received the 2013 Spirit of Design Award from Philadelphia University at their annual fashion show. The fashion power-house accepted the award this past weekend and was delighted to be honoured by this prestigious award. The designer’s eponymous collections range from ready-to-wear, to evening wear, to perfume and even bedding. Her keen sense of fashion and business is what sets her apart from other designers.
