The Gist: Novelty prints and bright colors influenced by a trip to Haiti and its voodoo culture. Featuring: Miller works her theme into boldly printed tops and skirts, as well as sequined cocktail separates and floaty evening dresses (some overly complicated). Mid-show, Miller brought in a more subdued color palette of gray, white, and black, which showcased plenty of great jackets and male-influenced shirting. The “It” Factor For Denver:
