RIP Nolan Miller

The creator of 1980s glamour, and costume designer for zeitgeist tv show Dynasty, passed away last night at the age of 79. In the words of Michael K., "wear your shoulder pads at half mast." Joan Collins, Nolan Miller's muse, made a statement regarding his death: "He was a huge part of my life. He was an innovator and helped define fashion through his lifelong contributions. His legacy is enormous and not only me but every one who knew him will miss the humor warmth and joy he gave generously. He was a rare gem - one of the truly good human beings in this world - and I am simply devastated he is gone."
