TWENTY IN PHILADELPHIA: Designer Nicole Miller, chief executive officer Bud Konheim and Mary K. Dougherty, who owns and operates both Nicole Miller Philadelphia boutiques toasted 20 years in the city at her Bellevue Hotel store in Center City. Some 200 guests enjoyed music, Champagne, Millertinis, hors d’oeuvres and an interactive photo booth while models showed looks from the past two decades. “It’s been an extraordinary journey with Nicole Miller,” said Dougherty, who has been a rep in six states for the brand.
Philadelphia has been one of the designer’s best-performing cities since the brand set up retail locations there in 1994.
