    Nolan Miller Design for Dynasty, a White, Beaded Chiffon Suite with Skirt and Pants for Joan Collins in her Role as Alexis. Circa 1985; chiffon, bugle beads; label: Nolan Miller; dress size: 6/8. Nolan Miller designed this evening suite for Joan Collins in her role as Alexis in the TV series Dynasty. The white beaded chiffon evening suite includes a waisted top, floor-length skirt and pants. The top has a "jewel" neckline closing at back with a zipper and velcro strap and velcro at the waist band. The fullness is emphasized with a padded shoulder and raglan sleeve tapering to a narrow wrist, closed with a zipper. The top, fully hand-beaded in a tight meandering line of white bugle beads, is fully lined in white chiffon. One of the shoulder pads is made of batting, the other is covered with a snap closure for lingerie straps. The skirt, also beaded in a tight meandering line of white bugle beads, is fully lined in silk chiffon with the waist finished with a grosgrain ribbon. The pant is fitted with two darts front and back with an unbeaded chiffon waist band. The pant is closed by zipper and hook & eye at back center. Like the top and skirt the pant is fully lined in chiffon and has an overall beading in a tight meandering line of white bugle beads. In Very Fine condition with some soiling to the inside neck lining, and bead loss on the back of the top at the waistband. From the Nolan Miller Collection.
