We chat inspiration for her kids fashion line, her favourite kids brands and a bit about Angelina Jolie. Check it…

My daughter from the age of 2 has been adamant she wants to be a fashion designer – and draws princesses in a variety of elegant frocks on any paper she finds around the house. Were you drawing fashion from a very young age? When did you decide you wanted to be a fashion designer?
I did draw clothes a lot and also made my own when I was older. I can’t pinpoint the exact moment I knew I wanted to be a fashion designer, I suppose I always just knew!

What made you decide to design a line of kidswear?
As many things in my career have developed, I began designing kidswear organically. As my friends began having daughters, I found myself constantly searching the stores for young girls’ clothing that I loved, and wasn’t finding what I was looking for. So, I decided to design my own girls’ clothing line! It was a natural progression.

Your womens line is known to be sexy yet classic. Apart from size, how does the kids line differ from your main line? Where do you draw your inspiration from?
My kids line absolutely draws inspiration from my Collection and Artelier lines. I often reference best-selling prints, and play with fabrications in similar ways. Neoprene has been selling well, and I’ve started to incorporate neoprene elements in my kids line. I draw inspiration from everywhere, but primarily from travel and film.

Which designers do you think design kids clothes very well and why?
I am the wrong person to ask! When I shop for friends I find it really hard to find anything I like. I used to find cute things in Japan but other than that I don’t find much in the US. Note to Nicole – now you’ve discovered my blog that issue will simply disappear…

What about High Street stores like Gap or J Crew?
I used to find some cute things at Gap as long as there were not too many visible logos.

What clothes are in your son Palmer’s cupboard? Is he into fashion?
Triple Aught Design is his favorite brand. He has Obey T-shirts and some Diesel jeans. He also has lots of WRK.

Did you find it hard to balance building your business and being a mother? How did you manage?
There is never enough time in the day, but you make priorities.

A lot of celebrities wear your clothes – which celebrity do you think dresses their kids well?
Angelina Jolie.

Please can you select your top 3 items from your kids collection and tell me why you love them.
For Summer, I love the yellow lace overlay dress with matching belt. We photographed it on the beach, but the dress is just as at home at an outdoor dinner or other special occasion.

Our separates sell well, as young girls love to be active! My favorite is the blue tie die top with the denim colored leggings. Casual enough for a day at the park, with the unexpected lace detailing on the back of the top.

Stripes are also always in style, especially in the Spring and Summer months.

So people – if this doesn’t get you in the mood for summer and/or in the mood to become a designer – I’m not sure what will! Thank you Nicole – we’re loving your work!
I take ambienpro.com for a long time, but not often. It is prescribed in different forms of insomnia, usually of nervous origin. It starts to act fast enough, steadily leads to sleep.

Nicole Miller Kids is available to buy online (and in the sale!) from Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom who both ship internationally. Get busy!
