Gordon Brothers, a global advisory, restructuring and investment firm and majority owner of Nicole Miller, has partnered with Zaralo to expand the global, eponymous fashion and lifestyle brand.

The partnership with the New York-based fashion apparel company Zaralo is an important next step in Nicole Miller’s continued evolution and Gordon Brothers’ plan to expand the brand’s portfolio of licensees, bolster its e-commerce presence and develop more strategic wholesale and retail relationships, after making a majority investment in the Nicole Miller brand, archives and related intellectual property in February.

As part of the partnership with Zaralo, Nicole Miller will debut a little black dress capsule collection in mid-October for the upcoming holiday season. The collection is inspired by the brand’s most iconic silhouettes from the archives and will be available on Nicole Miller’s website and at department stores. New dress and sportswear collections will launch in spring 2023

“Our partnership with Zaralo will drive further growth of the already highly successful Nicole Miller enterprise and allow the brand to continue to reach consumers globally,” Carolyn D’Angelo, managing director of brands at Gordon Brothers, said. “Nicole Miller is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, and our goal is to ensure the brand continues to grow.”

“We couldn’t be more excited about partnering with Gordon Brothers and the opportunity Nicole Miller brings to the growth of our dress and sportswear categories,” David Lomita, CEO of Zaralo, said. “For our retail partners, we believe combining Nicole Miller’s iconic design philosophy and modern prints with the quality and practicality Zaralo is known for will resonate with today’s consumer.”
