Julien's Auctions is proud to present "Property From The Estate Of Nolan Miller", an auction taking place in Beverly Hills and live online at Julien's Live on Saturday, July 18th.
“Property from the Estate of Nolan Miller" features an amazing collection of 127 lots representing his work. Nolan Miller’s life and designs epitomized Hollywood glamour. He not only designed garments for the original leading ladies of cinema; he also developed close friendships with Barbara Stanwyck, Ginger Rogers, Lana Turner, Susan Hayward, Bette Davis, Jane Wyman, Lucille Ball, Sophia Loren, Joan Crawford, and Elizabeth Taylor, to name a few.
Dame Joan Collins stated, “All of these stars loved him, as I did". He brought the fashion fantasy previously reserved for film to television and established a working relationship and friendship with Aaron Spelling. He would create his most iconic and memorable looks for the television series Dynasty, which ran from 1981 to 1989. Joan Collin’s wardrobe from the series still inspires admirers to elevate their style goals.
The collection includes more than 100 costume sketches. Some of the highlights from the sale include a series of watercolor on board costume sketches for the series Dynasty, including a Joan Collins costume sketch inscribed from Collins to Miller; several sketches of Elizabeth Taylor, including a sketch of the gown she wore as a presenter at the 1987 Academy Awards and a sketch of the gown she wore to the 1985 Golden Globe Awards inscribed from Taylor to Miller; a sketch of a gown worn by Barbara Stanwyck while accepting an honorary award at the 1982 Academy Awards inscribed by Stanwyck to Miller; a costume sketch of Ginger Rogers inscribed to Miller; a costume sketch of Bette Davis in a gown she wore on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson inscribed by Davis to Miller; and a Farrah Fawcett Charlie’s Angels costume sketch and photograph inscribed from Fawcett to Miller.
Also featured in the collection are photographs, letters, notes, correspondence, awards, and more.
