WAHS Alum Merida Miller to Appear at New York Fashion Week
Merida Miller of Crozet [WAHS 2007] has been selected as a finalist for FASHION|NEXT, ELLE magazine’s annual showcase of emerging designers. Miller will present her debut collection during an ELLE-curated runway show at Lincoln Center on September 9 during New York Fashion Week. She graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design, magna cum laude, in June and won the $1,000 Serlin prize, which is voted on by the faculty to honor the best all-around scholarship, design, and workmanship.
Miller will join the design team for the outer wear division at UnderArmour in Baltimore this month. ELLE will feature Miller’s work in its October and December issues, as well as in a webisode series on ELLE.com that offers a behind-the-scenes look at the designers’ journey to Lincoln Center.
