The It" Factor for Denver: As evidenced by the many local boutiques that carry her collection, Nicole Miller is a favorite in town, and next season she delivers with clean, sleek dresses, such as side-draped or body-skimming, sleeveless tanks. The Gist of the Show: Sporty and sexy define the tone of Miller's spring collection. Although she showed what are quickly becoming next season's staples---ruched and cutout, body-conscious dresses, biker jackets, sheer tanks, and fitted miniskirts---Miller mixes it up with ruched leggings and biker shorts, cropped and hip-length vests, and metallic-sequined skirts and dresses.
