Rock Bar Becomes Runway 

TThe collection is full of gold lamé and ruffles and asymmetrical hemlines, but the flash is marshaled with restraint. Miller says she used "cheap fabric, but I tried really hard to make it look more elegant." She's made cheap ideas more elegant as well.

Items like a gathered blouse with ruffled cap sleeves, like you might see off the rack, will appear instead made out of a sheer jersey material accented with a translucent fabric in Indian print. Miller relies on synching and stitching to keep the model modest.

"There are some conservative pieces here, but not very many, cause I'm not a very conservative person," Miller says.

According to the Nanci Raygun's manager, Sara Borey, models will use the wide bar as their runway, a proposition that makes her only slightly nervous. The Nanci Raygun agreed to do Miller's show because it is being paired with a DJ and musician Dan Sartain, so the evening will be an event, but run like a normal show. "Hopefully in the future other people will approach us wanting to do a show," Borey says.
