Lara’s pieces have been called “sultry, sophisticated, and as endlessly variable as the woman who wears them” by elle.com.
Born and raised in Chicago, Lara Miller’s work is strongly influenced by the city’s architectural and cultural landscape. Ecological sensitivity and fascination with both the built and moving form flow through each piece. Her modular designs are created with a playful geometry that connects to the personalities of the women who wear them. Both joyous and sophisticated, Lara’s work has attracted international acclaim.
Since exhibiting her student work as a “Featured Artist” at the Chicago boutique p.45 in the fall of 2002, Lara has made repeat appearances in GenArt’s Fresh Faces as well as the Macy’s on State Chicago Designer Shop. She has been named “Top 40 Under 40” by Crain’s Chicago Business as well as “Indie Designer of the Year” by Chicago Magazine.
